By BBN Staff: Sexual assault complaints continue to mount against Valley of Peace school principal Johnny Valencia. Valencia had already been charged with two counts of sexual assault against two female minors, when police received a third complaint.
Police are investigating the matter to determine where or not he has a charge to answer for.
The Ministry of Education placed Valencia on administrative leave since June 20, shortly after the matter went public. He will remain on leave pending the outcome of the court case. Meanwhile the school and the Ministry have formed a panel to conduct its own investigation.
Valencia is charged with having inappropriate contact with an 11-year-old and a 13-year-old girl. The age of third complainant is unknown.
