Jacqueline Ma arrest
Jacqueline Ma in jail has been a trendy topic online for the past few days following her arrest for molesting a minor.
A recent “Teacher of the Year” winner from a California elementary school Jacqueline Ma has been charged with sexually abusing a former 13-year-old pupil.
Ma, a sixth-grade instructor at Lincoln Acres Elementary School in National City, was detained on school property earlier this week and charged with a number of felonies, including lewd and lecherous actions with a minor.
A day after being approached by a “concerned parent who thought that her 13-year-old child was perhaps having an inappropriate relationship with a former instructor,” the National City Police Department announced in a press release that Ma was arrested on Tuesday morning.
According to the department, detectives and school resource officers “immediately” started looking into the complaint. According to the press release, police said they “established probable cause to arrest” Ma.
It wasn’t immediately obvious if Ma had hired a lawyer.
