After being placed in the District's North Teacher Detention Center (teacher Jail), although he faced no charges by the local policing authority, the teacher, Jim Hill, was subject of an administrative review conducted by Linda Del Cueto, the former local superintendent and highest-ranking official in the San Fernando Valley, who recently was demoted and reassigned to an administrative post in the Central Office of Curriculum and Instruction.
While Superintendent in the South Area, Del Cueto was informed by parents that teacher Robert Pimentel was molesting their daughters at George De La Torre Elementary School, but did nothing. She allowed a known child predator to be taken by a crony administrator from school site to school site, where he continued to molest students. Yet, in this case, based on no credible evidence, Del Cueto issued a recommendation of dismissal for a teacher who had never received any prior negative parent complaints or poor performance evaluation.
