    Marcella Pena, says she's not surprised by the arrest. Pena says she lodged three complaints against [Miguel] Yepez with school administrators the year before for what she terms inappropriate conduct involving her daughter, who was a second grader at the school during the 2009-2010 school year.
    • Ms. Pena says she complained to the school's principal after her daughter told her Yepez told her daughter that he was depressed over family problems. “I just felt like when an adult starts talking to a child in this way and tries to earn their trust, their confidence. It just gives me the creeps.” Pena said.
    • She said she complained again about two months later after her daughter overheard Yepez talking about two other students. “My daughter told me that Mr. Yepez was saying certain students in his classroom, second graders...he was saying these little girls were his girlfriends. That didn't seem appropriate to me at all.” Pena told Local 2 News.
    • Later that year, she made a third compliant after he daughter told her Yepez walked into a classroom and began massaging a female teacher's shoulders in front of students.
