Trial Underway for Former Teacher Accused of Sexually Assaulting Child

Jury selection got underway Tuesday for the trial of a former Coachella Valley Unified School District teacher accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a girl he met outside of his job.

Luis Alfonso Martinez, 43, is charged with two counts each of lewd acts on a minor and oral copulation of a child under 10 years old, as well as one count each of committing multiple lewd acts on an underage victim and distributing explicit material to a minor.
