Slide Court Report

A former classroom aide at Hart Elementary School was sentenced in court Thursday after pleading no contest to the charge of lewd or lascivious acts with a child 14 or 15 years old.

Steve Gonzales was sentenced to felony probation as well as either 1,440 hours of community service, or six months jail, according to Kern County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Joseph Kinzel. Gonzales was also ordered to register as a sex offender.

As previously reported, the Bakersfield Police Department said the child wasn't a student at the school when the incident occurred.
