SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A four-month investigation resulted in the arrest of a former school employee on Thursday for inappropriate contact with students, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said.
Sheriff’s detectives arrested Jeremiah Ellington, 27, and he was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on misdemeanor charges of child annoyance and use of an electronic device with the intent to annoy. He is being held on $10,000 bail.
Ellington is a former instructional aide at Bradshaw Christian School at 9555 Calvine Road in south Sacramento. On June 4 detectives started an investigation into allegations that Ellington maintained “inappropriate communication” with one or more students, Sgt. Jason Ramos said.
Detectives completed the investigation and forwarded their findings to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, resulting in warrants being issued for Ellington’s arrest. He was taken into custody Thursday afternoon at a residence in Sacramento County.
