This sort of teacher behavior is not usually a “one time” or “one victim” opportunity. It is very likely, as investigators have said, that the Orange County Sheriff’s Department will encounter victims beyond the two who have already reported.

Further Information on the Christian Hernandez Arrest
In describing the grooming behavior of Hernandez, Lieutenant Lane Lagaret was quoted as saying “This type of predator is a big concern for law enforcement in that they use their position to build trust with the victims so that they can get closer and commit their crime.”
Hernandez is from Rancho Santa Margarita. Of the two known victims, one was 16 at the time (now 20) and the other was 15 at the time (now 17), and the Sheriff’s Department has indicated that both incidents occurred at the students’ residences.
Los Rios School of Rock terminated Hernandez’ employment, which began in 2011, in September of 2016 after it became aware of his inappropriate communications with the two students, and reported the matter to law enforcement.
