Arraignment Postponed For Whitney High School Teacher

ROCKLIN (CBS13) – The arraignment for a Whitney High School teacher accused of an inappropriate relationship with a student has been postponed.

The Placer County District Attorney’s office postponed the arraignment of Matthew Yamamoto from today until November 7. The DA’s office says while it received the initial reports from the Rocklin Police Department, it is waiting for additional information before deciding which charges are appropriate.

Yamamoto, 33, was arrested on September 17 for child molestation and arranging for a meeting with a minor for purposes of committing a lewd act, according to police.

According to his personal website, Yamamoto is from Santa Rosa and graduated from UC Davis. He teaches physics courses at Whitney High and taught at Winters High for a year.
