LAS VEGAS (AP) - A high school teacher in Las Vegas has been
arrested on suspicion of engaging in sex with a student.
39-year-old Angel Menes, a driver's education teacher at Durango High, was booked Saturday night into the Clark County Detention Center on one count each of sexual assault and sexual misconduct with a student.
Detectives say the arrest follows an investigation spurred by a parent's report, and they're trying to determine whether any other
students may be involved.
They also say the case represents one of the first times that a law prohibiting sexual misconduct with a student has been used since its passage by the 2007 Legislature.
