Deputies said they learned about the allegations on Monday. According to deputies, the victim said Aguon simulated sex with him and touched his genitals both over and under his clothing.
Deputies also listened to a phone conversation between Aguon and the boy, in which the boy said he felt uncomfortable staying at Aguon’s home and did not like when Aguon kissed and touched him.
According to deputies, then Augon asked the boy, “Oh, the loving on you?” and later, “You know I was only messing with you,” before apologizing.
Deputies arrested Aguon at the school Tuesday afternoon.
According to the arrest document, Aguon admitted to deputies that he kissed the boy and touched his genitals over clothing, but denied touching him underneath his clothing.
Aguon was charged with two counts of lewd molestation.
