Students suspended for sexual activity

first_imgPASADENA – Police are investigating six students who recently engaged in sexual activity during school hours at John Muir High School. Police and school officials said they don’t know for sure if the Thursday incident, involving five boys and one girl inside a vehicle parked on campus, was consensual. “One female and several males were involved in some kind of sexual activity,” said Lt. Alex Uribe of the Pasadena Police Department. “But the case is still being written.” Uribe said Monday he had little information about the incident, but although it “appeared to be consensual,” minors can’t give consent under the law. “There was an allegation. Initially the information was it was consensual, then that it wasn’t, then maybe that it was,” said Assistant Superintendent George McKenna of the Pasadena Unified School District. “Either way, it was inappropriate. If you’re below the age of consent, then consent is an oxymoron.” All students allegedly involved have been suspended while the incident is investigated, McKenna added. Muir school administrators could not be reached for comment Monday.
