Former Middle School Teacher Arrested For Sex Abuse Had Criminal History

KRON 4 reported that sexual abuse allegations were brought against a teacher at Diablo Vista Middle School located at 4100 Camino Tassajara, Danville, CA 94506. 

On Wednesday, September 14, 2022, 41-year-old Nicholas Moseby was arrested after being accused of sexually abusing two girls, one 14 and one 15 years old.

Moseby was hired by the San Ramon Valley Unified School District in 2020 but was issued a certificate of clearance by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing in 2021. However, he has an extensive history of working with children:

  • taught biology at San Ramon Valley High School located at 501 Danville Blvd, Danville, CA, since 2021
  • served as a cheer coach at Nor Cal Elites since 2013
  • served as program director in San Ramon for Valley Cheer and Dance from 2013 to 2018

According to, one victim claimed Moseby sent videos of himself masturbating to her through Snapchat. He is also accused of inappropriately touching a victim during cheer practice. 

During the investigation, it was revealed that the school district hired Moseby despite having a previous arrest report, including:

  • charged with providing alcohol to a teen in 2009 and failing to submit fingerprinting as ordered by the court
  • charged with public intoxication in 2010, for which he failed to appear at the arrangement hearing
  • arrested in 2015 for being involved in a prostitution sting, which included answering an ad, meeting at a hotel, and offering to pay $120 

The district's superintendent claims that none of the arrests showed up on the background search, nor was he flagged by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing when applying. However, he was informed by Moseby of the charges for serving alcohol to a minor that he said were dismissed.

Justice For School Sex Abuse Victims

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson represents victims in school sex abuse lawsuits across the state of California. Bobby recently shared his knowledge regarding the legal rights available for victims sexually abused by a middle school teacher or cheer coach. 

"There are increasing reports of teachers and coaches sexually abusing students. School administrators have a legal obligation to make sure their children are safe from known predators. A basic safety plan should include security cameras and frequent security sweeps across the campus. A predator can easily abuse their position of power and trust in order to exploit children if they gain the position of teachers or coaches. School districts are responsible for ensuring that background checks are conducted for all school employees. Students are put at greater risk if their school fails to provide adequate security."

"In the event of a teacher or coach being arrested for sexual abuse, it is necessary to look at the faculty's procedures. A thorough investigation should be conducted to determine if sufficient security was in place to prevent abuse. In the event of negligence, the district and school can be held responsible for failing to stop a known predator. Victims and their families should consult with an experienced school sex abuse attorney to explore their rights to file a lawsuit. "
