A former Arroyo Grande High School music teacher was arrested last week in Bakersfield and charged with two felony counts of child sex abuse. [BakersfieldNow]

Luke Youngs, 34, is being charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child and lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14. The alleged 12-year-old victim is not a student of Foothill High School where Youngs was working as the school’s band director.

Police said Youngs admitted that he touched the girl’s genital area, buttocks and breasts for his own sexual gratification. The alleged sexual abuse began when the girl was 9-years-old and continued until she was 12.

From 2006 through 2008 Youngs taught at Arroyo Grande High School.

    I knew it, once those Catholic churches got the internet all those priests did was watch porn. No wonder they sexually abused those young males. Makes sense to me.

      Eighty year old man recently came forward to back up allegations at a catholic school for boys about abuse when he was there as a boy.
      the catholic priesthood has been cultivating a pattern of child abuse(buggery) that stretches back decades of decades
      why they still have a seat at the UN I’ can only guess.

      Were you there to prove that’s all “those priests did was watch porn”.

      My opinion…..put all in jail who hurt one of our young people. Priests, ministers, teachers, boy scout leaders, and others.

      All molesters need our prayers. They are in deep shit. God bless all the helpless children.

    This certainly wasn’t the first for a veteran of good ol AGHS.

    What is Lucia Mar doing to address this sort of thing now-a-days?… or is it still business as usual?
