BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A now-former Bakersfield City School District aide pleaded no contest to lewd acts with a minor on Wednesday.
Edward Alfred Gonzalez, 25, was arrested on charges of oral copulation, sodomy, false imprisonment with violence and lewd acts in May.
The victim, who was 15 years old at the time of the assault, fled the residence physically injured and police were called.
