After Teacher Convicted Of Sex Offenses, Corona-Norco USD Sued

The Corona-Norco Unified School District is the target of a lawsuit stemming from multiple sexual offenses perpetrated by a former high school teacher and athletics coach now serving time in state prison, it was announced Wednesday.

“Schools have a duty to protect the safety and welfare of students,” attorney Paul Mones said regarding the civil action. “Schools have a responsibility to not just properly and adequately supervise children delivered into their care by their parents, but as well a responsibility to adequately monitor teachers to ensure that they maintain appropriate and professional boundaries with students.”

The suit, filed in Riverside County Superior Court, names both the school district and Joe Robles Jr. of Ontario as defendants.
