LIVE OAK, CA - A Live Oak school district librarian and health aide faces child molestation charges after an alleged sexual act with an underage student.
Sharon Janelle Souza of Live Oak was arraigned Tuesday in Sutter County Superior Court on a felony charge of lewd acts on a child and misdemeanor child molestation.
Souza, 43, was arrested Monday in connection with the alleged acts that happened last December, Sutter County Sheriff's spokeswoman Brenda Baker. Baker said Sutter County investigators were looking into whether there were other victims in the case.
Souza worked first as a librarian aide, then as a health aide with the Live Oak Unified School District, district director of special programs Meschelle Righero said.
Righero said Souza was placed on paid administrative leave when the allegations came to light.
A preliminary hearing on the charges against Souza was scheduled for March 26. She declined a request for an interview.
