Last Monday, Riverside police arrested Camryn Raelynn Zelinger, a teacher at Encore High School for the Arts in Riverside on allegations of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor and annoying or molesting a child under the age of 18 who is also a student.
Zelinger’s arrest did not come as a surprise as the Child Abuse Unit of the Riverside Police Department which already had her under investigation after it was being advised of a potential inappropriate relationship between teacher and student.
In a press release, school officials advised that a team of counselors will be available to students for as long as needed to help guide them through this difficult period.
Encore is a charter school with campuses in both Riverside and Hesperia. Zelinger was released last week on $50,000 bail.
