A one-time assistant music director at a Catholic high school
in San Francisco will appear in San Mateo County court in April
for his formal arraignment, after he was accused of having an
improper relationship with a 17-year-old male student, prosecutor
Karen Guidotti said today.
Sean Aloise, 28, a faculty member at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory,
is charged with four misdemeanor counts of child annoyance or
molestation, according to Guidotti.
The alleged incidents took place in Daly City, according to Guidotti.
According to school principal Ken Hogarty, Aloise was a part
time employee and assistant director for the school's liturgical
music program from 1999 to 2005. At the beginning of this school
year he was assigned to teach one class.
"When boundary issues involving Mr. Aloise surfaced, school
personnel immediately reported that to Child Protective Services
and placed him on administrative leave,'' Hogarty said.
Aloise was released from his position at the school in October,
Aloise, who was released from custody on $20,000 bail, will appear
in court on April 14 at 9 a.m. for his arraignment.
Aloise faces up to four years in jail if convicted on all four
