Laguna Beach High School lacrosse coach Robert Sant, 37, of Irvine, was arrested last week for three counts of lewd and lascivious acts with children.
On Friday, April 5, at 1 p.m., School Resource Officer Cpl. Cornelius Ashton was advised by two female LBHS students that their LBHS lacrosse coach, Robert Sant, inappropriately touched them in non-intimate areas on their bodies, according to LBPD Sgt. Jim Cota. Cota said the most recent incident happened on a school bus on April 4 on the way home from a lacrosse game. Cpl. Ashton’s investigation led to a third female victim who was interviewed.
“LBUSD leadership was notified and took appropriate action,” Cota said.
On April 9, at 1:07 pm, Cpl. Ashton and LBPD detectives responded to the city of Irvine and arrested Sant. He was held on $100,000 bail and posted bail. Cota said the investigation is still ongoing.
