    I can’t believe this is true, he used to be my teacher and he was always one of my favorites, he was so cool, so nice. I’m completely shocked just reading this.

    Ohhh please do not say anything if you do not know anything. From my perspective Mr. Barajas has been and I will say still is the best math teacher a high school can ask for it. He has dedicate more than 5 years to the YCUSD, RVHS, and to it students. that you can ask to anybody how had him as a teacher including myself. I am against pedophiles but not against Mr. Barajas because he is not one of them as simple as that. Because It is my obligation as a citizen of this community to stand for justice and this investigation shall continue but until the law and not the Yuba City Unifided School District claims Manuel Barajas guilty ot inocent, he is not guilty therefore he shall be release from prison.
