Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Southeast Area Sex Crimes Unit are seeking additional victims who were sexually assaulted or involved with a former dean of a local Los Angeles high school.

On June 8, 2023, 43-year-old Roger Scott, a resident of Lakewood, was arrested and booked for 288.3(a) PC – Contact with a Minor with Knowledge and Intent to Commit Specified Sexual Offenses (Booking #6619697). Scott posted the $25,000 bail, with a court date set for June 29, 2023.

Scott was a dean at a local Los Angeles high school, located near the 9700 block of Holmes Avenue. His employment with the school ended in November of 2022. Scott was arrested after a report was received from a student alleging ongoing inappropriate sexual text messages and emails, pursuing her for sexual intercourse over a two-year period, while he was employed at the school. Detectives believe there are additional, unidentified victims. A photograph of Scott is being released to identify additional unreported persons who have been victimized by Scott.
