Vacaville high teacher booked on lewd acts with minor

A Vacaville High School teacher has turned himself in to police and has been booked on suspicion of lewd acts with a minor.

Rodney Orosco, a 47-year-old English teacher at the high school, turned himself into authorities on Wednesday.

The arrest of Orosco began with the report of a strange sighting. Police received a report that a grandparent of the girl saw Orosco carrying her across the stage of the high school's theater.

Family members spoke with the girl who related details of her relationship with Orosco. According to a Vacaville police press release, the girl said that Orosco allegedly kissed her on three separate occasions.

Text messages retrieved from the victim's cell phone supported the allegation against Orosco, police said. Detectives have also conducted extensive interviews, leading to an arrest warrant.
