Employee at Starr King K-8 after-school program accused of sex acts with two minor students

A "team leader" in an after-school program at Starr King K-8 School has been arrested after being accused of committing sex acts with two students off campus, according to authorities.

LAGOSx3062128.jpgOn Tuesday, Sacramento County sheriff's deputies arrested Julia Nicole Lagos, 19, on suspicion of lewd acts with a child under the age of 14, said Sgt. Lisa Bowman. Lagos was released from jail the same day after posting $50,000 bond, Bowman said.

She is scheduled to be arraigned on three felony counts Tuesday, according to Superior Court records available online.

Lagos is employed by the Mission Oaks Parks and Recreation District, which contracts with the San Juan Unified School District to run the Bridges after-school program at Starr King, Bowman said.

Lagos is no longer employed by Mission Oaks Parks and Rec, according to a district official.

At the time of the alleged assaults, worked as a "team leader," or classroom monitor, for a group of third and fourth graders, Bowman said.

Although the two victims are students who attend the Bridges after-school program, the two boys were not under Lagos' supervision, the sergeant said. At the request of detectives, she did not release the ages of the two victims.

The sex acts are alleged to have occurred at a local park after the Bridges program had concluded on those days, Bowman said. Detectives believe Lagos had inappropriate conduct on multiple occasions with one victim and once with the other.

Trent Allen, spokesman for San Juan Unified, said the allegations were brought earlier this month to Starr King's principal, who notified the Sheriff's Department. Lagos was "removed from the school environment" and has not been back.

Bowman said detectives do not believe there were any other victims.

Barry Ross, director of recreation and marketing for Mission Oaks Parks and Rec, said Lagos was hired in August. She recently was "released of her duties," he said, though he declined to say when.

"We are in cooperation with law enforcement and the San Juan Unified School District," Ross said. "Of course we want this resolved."

Lagos had no previous criminal record in Sacramento County, according to Superior Court records. Efforts to reach her have been unsuccessful.
