A former Rosemead High School walk-on track coach was sentenced to three years in state prison for sex-related charges involving a female student, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.
Fidel Camarena Dominguez, 37, of La Puente, was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life as a result of his no contest plea on Monday to two counts of a lewd act on a child who was 14 or 15 years old, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Prosecutors said Dominguez had a sexual relationship with the girl between February 2015 and June 2017.
Dominguez was arrested March 1 and has remained behind bars, jail records show.
In a statement released shortly after the charges were announced in March, El Monte Union High School District Superintendent Edward Zuniga said the suspect “has worked as a substitute teacher and walk-on coach at Rosemead High School. He is no longer allowed on or near campus. All processes and protocols were followed prior to his commencing work. The El Monte Union High School District is deeply committed to fostering a positive, safe and secure learning environment for our students, staff and faculty. We do not tolerate any behavior that compromises the security of our students, and we take all accusations seriously.”
