Former elementary school teacher accused of molestation


A former Riverside County elementary school teacher has been arrested on suspicion of molesting a student and other children, authorities said Thursday.

Sean Edwards, 49, was taken into custody Thursday on a felony child molestation warrant, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Edwards, who taught at Granite Hill Elementary School in Jurupa Valley, resigned in August after an allegation surfaced that he had molested a student during the 2013 school year, authorities said in a statement.

After the allegation, the Sheriff's Department launched an investigation.

"The investigators determined that the former teacher had molested more than one child," authorities said. They said the suspected molestations took place over several years at multiple locations.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call authorities at (951) 955-2600.
