A Spanish teacher at Dana Hills High School was arrested on suspicion of child molestation and possession of child pornography.

Ezequiel Barragan, 48, of Aliso Viejo, was the target of a U.S. Postal Service investigation regarding child pornography. The investigation also resulted in information that Barragan was having sexual relations with a boy for the last two years, according to Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Barragan coached baseball in junior high schools, high schools and youth leagues for the past 20 years, Hallock said.

Barragan was arrested Monday on suspicion of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child under 14 and possession of child pornography. He was booked into Orange County jail where he was held on $500,000 bail. He is due in court on Wednesday.
