CASTROVILLE, Calif. (KION-TV)- In August, the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office was made aware of accusations of sexual assault against a teacher at North Monterey County High School.

Sergio Munoz Marquez, 58, allegedly assaulted a former student during school hours on school property, said deputies. He was arrested in his Salinas home Tuesday and charged with numerous sexual assault charges.

Marquez was a teacher in the Automotive Program at the school, said deputies. Upon learning of his allegations the North Monterey Unified School District “relived Marquez of his teaching duties.”
