More Allegations Surface Against Roberto Clemente Substitute

November 14, 2014

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

As Montgomery County Public Schools continue to investigate the incident which surfaced last Friday regarding a substitute engaging in inappropriate touching of 12-year-old girl, more young girls have come forward, according to a statement released by MCPS Thursday night.

   On Oct. 14, 50-year-old substitute teacher Jose Pineda was arrested by Montgomery County Police following an investigation stemming from allegations that he squeezed her legs and bottom while working at Roberto Clemente Middle School on Sept. 30.

   Thursday night MCPS released a statement indicating that more students may have been abused, after the school district released a list of schools where Pineda has worked.

   “Over the past two days,” the statement reads, “some students at Ridgeview Middle School and Gaithersburg Elementary School have come forward and indicated they had interactions with Mr. Pineda that were inappropriate or made them feel uncomfortable. The parents of these students have been consulted and the police are investigating these allegations. Mr. Pineda had worked at Ridgeview Middle School for 29 days and Gaithersburg Elementary School for three days since the beginning of last school year.”

   “If there are any other reports of inappropriate conduct involving Mr. Pineda,” the statement went on, “we will work with the police to ensure the matter is investigated in a timely and thorough manner.”

   MCPS said that Pineda, who faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted on the two counts of sex offense; Sex Abuse of a Minor and Sexual Offense in the Third Degree, stemming from the Roberto Clemente incident, worked at 20 different MCPS schools since the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year. In Germantown, Pineda worked at Roberto Clemente for nine days, Seneca Valley High School for one day, and Clopper Mill Elementary School for four days, according to MCPS. Pineda worked in MCPS schools for a total of 113 days since the start of the 2013-2014 school year.
