Ex-teacher at Cholla High Magnet School sentenced in sex offense


An ex-teacher at Cholla High Magnet School was sentenced Tuesday in a case involving inappropriate conduct with a student in 2016.

Under a plea agreement, Pima County Superior Court Judge Deborah Bernini sentenced Eddie Rodriguez to three years probation for aggravated assault on an incapacitated victim, said Krisanne LoGalbo, a court spokeswoman.

Eddie RodriguezRodriguez is not eligible for early termination. He also was not ordered to register as a sex offender, but if he violates his probation a judge could decide otherwise, LoGalbo said.

In October 2016, Tucson police were called to Cholla, 2001 W. Starr Pass Boulevard, where a 15-year-old student reported that Rodriguez made sexual contact with her while on campus.

Rodriguez was arrested on a sexual abuse charge. At the time, district officials placed Rodriguez on administrative leave.

  1. “Not eligible for early termination” after sexually assaulting an incapacitated 15 year old?

    Oh, I couldn’t disagree more that early termination is what he’s eligible for and then some.

    Another case in point as to how dangerous unions can be and why some support them so blindly. Protection for offenders or abusers, no matter how blatant or egregious, is afforded as long as your dues are paid.
