Young Park Accused of Inappropriately Touching Everett Alvarez School Student

SALINAS (August 10, 2017) – A 16-year-old girl was allegedly molested at school by her teacher, Young Park, according to a news report by KSBW.

The mother of the victim narrated how the inappropriate contact started last year. She said initially, Park just gave remarks on the child’s look and hair. In November 2016 the teacher became physical when he allegedly touched the shoulder of the child, and even placed his hand inside her pocket and grabbed the child.

Salinas Child Molestation

As per the report, the parents immediately filed complaints, leading to an internal investigation headed by the district police. Subsequently, the district attorney filed misdemeanor charges against Park last May 2017 but he has not yet been arrested or booked in the county jail since.

Last school year, the school administration removed the victim from the Park’s classes following the complaint. But officials believed Park actually finished teaching the last term and is still employed at Everett Alvarez School, even with an ongoing child molestation case.

Park is expected to again appear in court on August 11. During his first appearance, Park pleaded not guilty to child molestation and sexual battery charges against him.


Police will investigate this incident and will dig deeper through the surface to see if there have been any other victims who have suffered from the actions of Mr. Young Park. An experienced sexual assault lawyer like JAG founder James Johnson will take the time to look into whether there were multiple parties or government entities that should be held liable. For example, if the suspect, Mr. Root, was working at the time when these events transpired, the employer of Mr. Park may also share the blame. A government that failed to ensure the safety of minors and school students who board the bus, may also have some responsibility.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of sexual assault, contact the Johnson Attorneys Group today at 800-235-6801.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
