According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney, the youth was not a student at OVHS. The assaults took place in July and August 2017 at the home of the defendant Andrew Bueno-Potts, a resident of Long Beach. He was arrested by Long Beach police.

The victim lived at the defendant’s home during that time, according to the D.A.’s office.

Bueno-Potts pleaded no contest earlier this month to one count of sodomy of a person under the age of 18. He will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, and was ordered to stay away from the victim for 10 years.
