NAPA, CA — An employee at a Napa school was arrested last week on multiple charges related to inappropriate conduct with a minor, police said.

According to police, a school resource officer with the Napa Police Department was notified May 18 by administrators at New Tech High School about an inappropriate incident between a juvenile victim and a school employee who was later identified as Jayro Alexis Esparza-Garcia, 23, of Napa.

The officer conducted a preliminary investigation which police allege uncovered a series of sexually explicit and suggestive electronic communications between the victim and school employee.

He was interviewed and subsequently arrested and booked at the Napa County Detention Center on May 23 on suspicion of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, sending harmful material, meeting a minor for lewd purposes, contact with a minor for a sexual offense, furnishing marijuana to a minor, annoying a child and obscene matter.
