High school volunteer charged with having sex with student in Azusa

Eric DoungA 23-year-old man who volunteered at a high school in Azusa was charged Thursday with having sex with a 16-year-old student, police said. 

Eric Doung, who lives in West Covina, was charged by the Los Angeles County district attorney with four counts of oral copulation with a minor in connection with the incident at Gladstone High School, the Azusa Police Department said.

Police said Doung was also a volunteer at Tustin High School and El Modena High in Orange.

The student’s parents contacted authorities after they decided their child had an inappropriate relationship with the volunteer, according to police, who did not say whether the student was a girl or boy.

Now we know why he volunteered, notice there is lots of these perverts looking up your kids skirts without any background check or requirements. I say only women should be allowed to volunteer in such delicate places, i knew the females in schools i went gave that "mom" comfort away from home that a male couldn't.

what a scumbag

I say Montana is a loon.

i hate how people dont even know him and are makeing judgments :/

Sad! A clear case of the victim becoming the victimizer...*sigh*>

Montana Gold: How do you know a female would not do the same? Gender makes no difference in this situation, do some reading and be a little bit more modern in your thinking. trust me a background check would not have done anything as their record was clean prior to this situation. In this day and age our ideas and thoughts should be less naive and more broad. Also, who is to say this kid didnt lift their skirt to be looked at? Lets teach our kids how to keep their "skirts" down.Sadly it's this naive type of mentalities that gets kids in these situations, they are both at fault here.

All the people who have commented on this don't even know him.
@Loser: He is not a scumbag. I don't think scumbags go to college and get accepted into one of the top med schools in the country so just shut up and go do something productive instead of judging someone you dont know.

Your blog is great. Your thoughts are also very good and i am very inspired from your post. That is why I visit this blog again and again . Thanks!
