In late March 2017, the Kern County Sheriff’s Office began investigating allegations that a substitute teacher at Foothill High School had possibly made inappropriate comments to students during two separate classes he was teaching at the school.

During the two month investigation, detectives were able to determine that the teacher, identified as Kwang Woo Chung, had made inappropriate sexual remarks on at least two separate occasions while instructing students.

At the conclusion of the investigation detectives were able to obtain a warrant for his arrest charging him with one count of annoying a minor.

On June 14, 2017, detectives made contact with Chung and issued him a misdemeanor citation for the outstanding warrant. Chung’s first scheduled court date is July 13.
