A Merced High School science teacher was arrested last week after he allegedly was caught by a patrolling Merced County sheriff’s deputy in a parked pickup truck engaged in “inappropriate physical contact” with a 16-year-old student.
Blia Yang, 30, was booked into Merced County Jail about 7:30 p.m. Friday on one count of oral copulation with a minor under 18 and one count of sexual intercourse with a minor under 18. He posted bail and was released from custody a short time later, according to booking records.
Yang has taught physics, Advanced Placement chemistry and other classes at Merced High School for five years, according to the school district website. He has been placed on administrative leave, district officials said.
