UNION CITY (KRON) — Union City police have arrested a James Logan High School teacher Friday accused of having sex with a student.
Earlier that day, New Haven Unified School District personnel contacted police when they became aware of an alleged physical relationship between a teacher and a James Logan student.
Joe Rey Valle, 49, of Union City, was arrested later that evening for unlawful intercourse with a minor, Union City police Lt. Matias Pardo said.
The school district placed Valle on administrative leave on Monday.
“Prior to being hired by the district, Mr. Valle did pass all required screenings and background checks, however, as part of our commitment to student safety, we took immediate action to initiate the proper notifications and investigations,” Pardo said in a statement.
Anyone with any information related to this case is encouraged to call the Union City Police Department Investigations at (510) 471-1365.
