An Ewa Elementary School A+ leader is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old former student.
An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment today charging Jordan Cortez with eight counts of sexual assault.
Circuit Judge Shirley Kawamura set Cortez’s bail at $75,000.
Deputy Prosecutor Loren Haugen told Kawamura that Cortez has known the girl since she was 8 years old, when he was her second-grade A+ leader. The girl was in the eighth grade when Cortez is accused of sexually assaulting her between October and December 2016.
The YMCA operates the A+ program at Ewa Elementary. No one from the organization could be reached to confirm whether or not Cortez is still an A+ leader.
