By Greg Hardesty

Fullerton police detectives arrested a seventh-grade science teacher New Year’s Eve on suspicion of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14 and sexual penetration of a child under 10, the Fullerton PD said in a news release Friday.

Christopher Millette, 36, of Fullerton knew the female victim, police said, but the alleged molestation is not related to the school where he teaches, Valadez Middle School Academy in Placentia, and there are no known victims associated with his employment.

The Fullerton PD did not release any other details, such as when or where the alleged molestation occurred.

Millette was arrested around noon Dec. 31.

Anyone with information relevant to this case is asked to contact Fullerton PD Det. Wright at 714-738-6754.
