    Del Rosario works as a teacher's aide at Reflections Central School, an educational program for young offenders, according to police.

    Neighbors in Del Rosario's El Cajon neighborhood said the accusations were uncharacteristic of Del Rosario. She was happily married for years when she moved there months ago.

    “It’s very rare to have a school official be involved in something like this, even more so to have a female suspect,” Capt. Dan Willis with the La Mesa Police Department told NBC 7. 

    Police said the 15-year-old may not be the only victim.

    School officials heard about the alleged incident and contacted police to investigate. Del Rosario was booked into Las Colinas Detention Center on Monday afternoon.

    She was charged with performing a lewd act with a child, intent to commit a sexual offense with a minor and unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.

    “The kids here are very vulnerable and they’re there for six to seven hours per day with these authority figures who, if they’re inclined to do so, can sometimes take advantage of that relationship,” Willis said.

    Anyone with information on this case can call the La Mesa Police Department at 619-667-1400.
