    LAist: El Segundo Teacher Was Serial Child Molester, Authorities Say (Dec 21 2013)

    A fifth-grade teacher who worked for the El Segundo Unified School District has been charged by a grand jury with molesting 13 boys, mostly in the L.A. area. The Daily Breeze reports that Jeffrey Simonek, 28, of Torrance, is facing 20 charges of lewd acts with children under 14 years old. The crimes were committed in his classroom among other places, authorities allege. Simonek was arrested on $20 million bail in November, and is now in custody at Twin Towers jail in downtown L.A. Although Simonek was first arrested a year ago, it was based on one incident that involved two boys. Prosecutors didn’t charge him at the time, hoping to give investigators time to uncover more crimes. The investigation grew to include alleged crimes against kids he supervised at camps as well as students in his classes. Sixteen of the incidents occurred in L.A. County; the other four were in Orange and Plumas counties, authorities believe.
