WESTMINSTER – A 24-year-old high school teacher’s aide was charged today with multiple counts of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl he met in class. Kristopher Charles Maw, 24, of Huntington Beach, was charged with two felony counts of oral copulation of a minor under the age of 16, two felony counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object, and two felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse. If convicted of all charges, Maw faces seven years and four months in state prison. Maw is out of custody on bail.

Maw is accused of engaging in oral copulation, digital penetration and sexual intercourse with Jane Doe in his car and in a hotel room.
