OC Teacher Accused of Fondling Student

A woman who worked as a teacher at an Orange County juvenile correctional center was arrested following reports that she kissed and fondled a 16-year-old boy.

The teacher, 43-year-old Dawn Marie Baloun of Lake Forest, is facing one misdemeanor count of child annoyance, a crime punishable by up to a year in jail.

According to prosecutors, Baloun's inappropriate relationship with the boy occurred between March and April 2009 at the Joplin Youth Center in Trabuco Canyon. They allegedly would meet in empty classrooms, closets, and offices and kiss and fondle each other.

When the boy was transferred to another facility, they continued to correspond through letters, mostly about their sexual relationship. Police were alerted when a counselor at the facility found the letters.

Since their affair was discovered, Baloun has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. She is scheduled to be arraigned April 12.

Aggressive Defense Against Sex Crimes

If you have been arrested for some type of sex crime, particularly a sex crime involving a minor, it's imperative that you contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry right away. Sex crimes against minors are taken very seriously, even if the minor is almost of adult age. Not only could you be sent to jail and ordered to pay a large fine, but you could also be ordered to register as a sex offender, a stigma that can easily damage your reputation and hurt your chances of keeping this incident in the past. The best thing you can do following an arrest for a sex crime is to speak with an Orange County criminal defense lawyer at our office. We can competently address your charges and determine what defense strategies will be most effective in helping you achieve a successful outcome.
