Further Information on Ronnie Lee Roman and his Sex Abuse case

While Roman was just sentenced in August, he had been convicted on June 7, 2017 for seven counts of lewd acts on a child. Prosecutors indicate that he had molested five young girls at Cahuenga Elementary (Koreatown) between 2012 and 2014, and another young girl at Vine Street Elementary (Hollywood) back in 2001-2002. The investigation, headed up by the Los Angeles Police Department and their Sexually Exploited Child Unit began in September of 2014, after one of the girls reported the molestation.

Officials also say that six of the occurrences of sexual abuse were on school grounds, and a seventh was at the home of one of the victims.
