High school math teacher charged with statutory rape


A Santa Clara High School math teacher has been charged with statutory rape for allegedly having sex with a female student, and will be arraigned today in San Jose, according to the district attorney’s office.

Hugo Cortes Guzman, 32, will face four felony charges of unlawful sex with a minor, Santa Clara County Supervising Deputy District Attorney Stacey Capps said.

The victim is a 17-year-old girl who had been a student in one of Guzman’s classes, Capps said.

Guzman allegedly engaged in sexual activity with the girl off of the school campus between September 2012 and this month, Capps said.

Guzman was still teaching at Santa Clara High School up until the day of his arrest on Tuesday, Capps said. According to the school’s website, he taught algebra and AP statistics.

He will be arraigned at about 1:30 p.m. today, Capps said.
