Following this month’s Courier article entitled, #MeToo In Beverly Hills: Former Student Details Sexual Harassment While Attending BHUSD School, the Beverly Hills Police confirmed the department had opened up an investigation into the incidents that prompted former Beverly Hills Unified School District Chief Human Resources Officer Yolanda Mendoza to author a letter stating that a Beverly Vista student had “engaged in sexual harassment on multiple occasions” against another student.
“The case is still under investigation,” stated a BHPD spokesperson. “We do not provide specific details about open criminal investigations, but generally speaking an investigator assigned to a criminal matter will conduct interviews of all parties and any witnesses, collect any evidence and write follow-up reports. Once a criminal investigation is completed, a case will be presented to the District Attorney’s office for filing consideration.”
