A California teenager appearing in court for allegedly sodomizing two students in separate incidents yelled “get me out of here” as he was led away from his family by bailiffs.

Fernando Salgado was one of four students at A.B. Miller High School, in Fontana, Calif., arrested in the attempted sodomy of another student with steel rebar while the other three – all minors – allegedly held the boy down and removed his pants, reported KTLA.

Another incident took place June 14 involving three students who allegedly held down another boy while Salgado attempted to sodomize him with a wooden broom handle, according to KTLA.

“The allegations are something that have been just gut-wrenching for us,” Fontana Unified School District Superintendent Cali Olsen-Binks told the station.

Salgado, 18, pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of sexual penetration and false imprisonment while sobbing in front of his family. Eventually he became so upset he jostled bailiffs before being physically restrained and led out of the courtroom.

The judge and lawyers left the room as bailiffs dimmed the lights and also escorted Salgado’s family out of the courtroom, with his sister shouting, “What if that was your son?” the San Bernadino Sun reported.

The alleged incidents both took place in the same summer school masonry class taught by Emmanuel Delarosa.

Teacher Emmanuel Delarosa, 27, has been charged with child abuse and failure to report child abuse, along with other charges.
Delarosa, 27, was originally arrested and charged with child cruelty after he was accused of knowing about the hazings and allegedly ordered one of the attacks “to limit behavioral problems in the classroom,” police told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

Adrianna Mares, 19, a former student of Delarosa’s, told KTLA that hazings were common in his classes, saying students would “take the broom and put it between their butt and the top of their jeans.”

After further investigation, authorities charged Delarosa with two counts of felony attempted sexual penetration by a foreign object on a minor over 14 and two counts of felony false imprisonment by violence, according to the station.

If convicted, Salgado and Delarosa face lengthy prison sentences and would be required to register as sex offenders, reported the station.

Delarosa posted $100,000 bail and was released until his arraignment July 7.

Salgado’s bail, set at $300,000, was posted as well, reports the San Bernadino Sun. He is due to return to court July 9, with a preliminary hearing set for two days later.

The three minors have not been identified, and prosecutors have not commented on whether or not they would be charged with any crimes.

“Due to state law, all juvenile matters are considered confidential,” San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Chris Lee told KTLA.

Fontana Unified School District Police Chief William Megenney told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin that he does not believe any other school employees were involved in the alleged incidents, adding that Delarosa has been placed on administrative leave until the issue has been resolved.

There are conflicting reports as to whether Delarosa’s leave is paid or unpaid.

Supporters of Delarosa told KTLA that the alleged incidents are being blown out of proportion.

Valerie Mares, Adrianna Mares’ mother, told the station: “Apparently, other kids are holding other kids up against a wall and shoving a broomstick up their butt on the outside of their clothes.”

“He had mentioned an incident where they kind of just maybe messed around,” Salgado’s sister Krista Hernandez told KTLA.

“I think it was horseplay that might have gotten out of hand, and somebody may have gotten hurt as a result of it,” Hernandez added before saying that her brother “isn’t what they’re portraying him to be.”

Other people told the San Bernadino Sun that the young teacher gave up a higher-paying job three years ago to help students and was scheduled to leave on a Christian mission to Haiti in a few weeks.

The district made counselors available to all students and is also conducting its own investigation, according to KTLA.

“We will hold anyone accountable if there is any wrong doing,” Olsen-Binks told the station.

Neither Delarosa nor Salgado have spoken publicly about the allegations.
