Ex-Jordan High School Teacher Charged with 5 Felonies of Sexual Assault and Abuse
Former Jordan High School teacher, Mark Santo, is charged with five felonies relating to sexual abuse or assault of three former students.
Santo resigned from working at Jordan High and began teaching at Lindbergh Middle School before being arrested on suspicion of sexual conduct with students. The initial report highlighted lewd conduct with a 13-year-old girl, as stated in www.lbpost.com. Before his resignation, the district moved to fire Santo after admitting to having sexual intercourse with a former student who was 18 years old, which he claims was consensual.
Since the initial arrest, Santo faces new charges, including forced oral sex of an 18-year-old former student. Santo is charged with five felonies for sexually assaulting or abusing three students from his schools, two being underage at the time. Santo denies sexually abusing the said underaged students and maintains that the sexual encounter with his former 18-year-old student was consensual.
