Posted by Fay Arfa | Oct 26, 2018 | 0 Comments

A high school teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Kelly Kelley said Andrew Bueno-Potts (dob 8/20/75) of Long Beach faces one felony count each of sodomy by intoxication, sodomy of a person under 18, sexual penetration by foreign object and intoxication, and sexual penetration by foreign object of a person under 18.

Bueno-Potts pleaded not guilty to the charges today and is scheduled back in court on Nov. 2 in Department 1 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Long Beach Branch. Case NA110551 was filed yesterday.

The sexual assaults allegedly occurred at the defendant's residence when he let the victim live with him between July and August 2017, the prosecutor said. Bueno-Potts is a teacher at a school in Huntington Beach but the alleged victim was not a student at that school.

If convicted as charged, the defendant faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years in state prison. Bail is set at $500,000.

The case remains under investigation by the Long Beach Police Department.
