Teacher's aide faces new sexual assault charge

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A teacher's aide at Sierra Middle School is facing an additional charge, accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy.

Edward Gonzalez, 25, pleaded not guilty back in May to four felony sex charges. A motion was granted Tuesday to add a charge of a lewd and lascivious act with 14 or 15 year old. Gonzalez is scheduled to appear in court again next month.

Police say he met the boy at a party who he took home and sexually assaulted. Officials say the 15-year-old is not a student in the Bakersfield City School District.

A spokesperson with BCSD has previously stated Gonzalez is on administrative leave.
