A woman working for the Azusa School District has been accused of having a long-term sexual relationship with a teenage student.

On May 3, the Azusa Police Department received a tip regarding the possibility of a staff member of the school district having engaged in illegal sexual behavior with an underage student.

While looking into the claim submitted, the police reported that at first, they were unable to validate the allegations. After several days of digging into the details, they believed they had uncovered information causing them to suspect that 28-year-old Jessica Marie Esparza may have been the adult in the acts. It was also purported that the alleged involvement between Esparza and the student sparked up in 2016.

On Wednesday morning at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, a female inmate approached a teaching instructor on the staff claiming she had been raped by a deputy during the night in the one of the jail dormitories. The woman named her alleged attacker as 31-year-old Giancarlo Scotti; a San Pedro resident and 10-year veteran deputy of the LA County sheriff’s department who is employed at the facility. Shortly after the initial report a second woman made similar allegations about Scotti, who was on duty during the time the assaults occurred.

As reported during a news conference by L.A. County Sheriff Jim McDonnell, the area of the jail where the alleged attacks took place was hastily secured in order to preserve any possible evidence. Investigators were called to the scene, and Scotti was held in a watch commander’s office. After an initial inspection, enough data including DNA evidence was obtained to justify Scotti’s arrest on suspicion of two counts of rape and two counts of oral copulation, both under the color of authority.

No charges were filed, and within 10 hours of his booking Scotti was released after posting $100,000 bail. He has currently been put on paid administrative leave.
