According to an article recently posted by the Fresno Bee, Juan Carlos Tafolla, a Tulare County High School Teacher, was arrested recently on suspicion of possessing child pornography. Mr. Tafolla posted bail last week following his arrest. Today, the Fresno Bee reported that Mr. Tafolla was also arrested on suspicion of having sex with a minor. It is not clear if Mr. Tafolla was arrested initially on all charges or arrested after posting bail on the charge of having sex with a minor.
Sex charges are some of the most serious criminal charges an individual can face. In many instances, the charges relating to a claim that an individual possessed child pornography will be litigated in Federal Court. Whether the charges are brought in the Tulare County Superior Court, or the Federal Court for the Eastern District, the penalties, including a significant period of incarceration, are severe.
