STOCKTON (CBS13) — A Chavez High School teacher is in trouble, accused of inappropriately touching a child.
Brad Spacek has been teaching freshmen at the Stockton school, but now his job is on the line as he’s facing charges for inappropriately touching a child.
He looked calm in court as he waited for his first appearance before a judge. He faces one charge of engaging in lewd acts with a minor.
The counts stem from at least three incidents between 1999 and 2002.
“There are three counts pertaining to one victim, but we are investigating the possibility of other victims,” deputy district attorney Angela Hayes said.
The Stockton Unified School District would not comment specifically on Spacek, but did say once the court files formal charges, teachers are put on unpaid administrative leave.
The high school is on spring break. The district says Spacek will not be allowed to teach on Monday, even if released on bail.
Nobody answered the door at his home, though a neighbor did confirm the high-school teacher lived next door.
Hayes could not say if the victim was a former student, but did add detectives are trying to determine if there are other victims and says more charges could be coming.
Spacek did not enter a plea and will be back on court on March 26.
