Beaumont Unified School District’s Samantha Lee Ciotta is the 32-year-old English teacher and head cheer coach at Beaumont High School recently arrested for sexual abuse of a student.

Beaumont police detectives began investigating this case based on a tip. In the course of the investigation, the victim disclosed the months-long unlawful sexual abuse by a teacher at Beaumont High School. Based on evidence the authorities discovered (inappropriate communications between the teacher and student via various messaging platforms), Ciotta, of Banning, California, was taken into custody on Wednesday September 20, 2017. She is currently held at the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in nearby Banning, also in Riverside County.

In our very considerable experience over the course of decades, we have virtually never seen a teacher, scout leader, coach, or any other authority figure working with children, having committed child sexual abuse “just one time” or “just with this one victim”. Unfortunately, there is a near-100% chance that police will find additional students from Ciotta’s seven years as a credentialed teacher, and possibly prior, beyond the one that is reporting currently. If your child knew Ms. Ciotta, was taught by her or coached by her at Beaumont High or prior, and you become suspicious of harm this teacher may have caused, please let us know immediately, after you get in touch with Beaumont authorities.
