SANTA ANA – On Tuesday night 34-year-old Jaime Orendain was arrested after allegation of an inappropriate sexual relationship with a minor.
Orendain had worked as a part-time assistant wrestling coach and activities supervisor at Santa Ana High School. He allegedly had a eight-month relationship with a 17-year-old female student who no longer attends the school.
The sexual encounters often occurred on school property during school hours. When the suspect learned of the investigation under way, he fled and made verbal statements about a move to San Antonio, Texas.
When officers went to his home, he was not there. They began a search in the area and found Orendain hiding in a riverbed near the 4000 block of West Segerstrom Avenues.
He was arrested and charged for felony statutory rape and other charges.
