SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Sacramento city and part-time Sacramento City Unified School District employee has pleaded guilty to six counts of child molestation.
Joshua Vasquez was the program leader for the Sacramento’s START after-school program and a part-time employee with the school district.
The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office says his victims ranged from 7 to 13 years old. They say he would take children into his classroom, lock the door and blindfold them while playing several games intended to have them touch his genitals. These games included the “cool whip,” “juice” and “treasure chest” games.
Vasquez also recorded those acts.
He was arrested in November after police investigated an alleged sexual assault at Mark Twain Elementary School. The school district terminated him after learning of the accusations.
He will be sentenced to 150 years to life in prison.
