A teacher at San Leandro High School has been arrested and charged for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a teenager, police said today.
Leon Chang, was charged by the Alameda County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday with felony charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and arranging a meeting with a minor for sexual purposes, according to police Lt. Mike Sobek.
The charges came after a several months-long investigation triggered when the San Leandro Unified School District was notified that Chang might be having an inappropriate relationship with a minor, Sobek said.
School district officials reported the allegations to police, who uncovered forensic and other evidence indicating an ongoing relationship between Chang and the minor, Sobek said.
Chang turned himself in to San Jose police today, Sobek said. Lt. Randall Brandt, head of the Criminal Investigation Division, said the investigation was a collaborative one between school officials and detectives.
"This close working relationship is a force multiplier when it comes to keeping our minors safe," said Brandt.
