A teacher at Double Diamond Elementary School in Reno is under arrest for the sexual assault of a minor. The crimes that 53-year-old Corry Hansen is accused of did not happen on school grounds, and did not involve a student.
Reno police say a 13-year-old girl reported that Hansen sexually assaulted her over the past year. They will not say how the victim and Hansen know each other.
Police arrested Hansen Thursday night on 9 counts of sexual assault on a minor, and four counts of lewdness with a minor.
A spokesman for the Washoe County School District official says they're shocked by the news. He says the District conducts a thorough background check of all school employees, involving fingerprints that are submitted to the FBI.
