LAPD ultimately charged Silva with an undisclosed number of crimes relating to sexual battery and child annoyance. His $400,000 warrant was executed without incident, police said.

Update: Silva Convicted of Sexual Battery, Molestation of 18 Girls

May 9, 2019 – A Los Angeles jury ruled Tuesday that former Van Nuys high school science teacher and lacrosse coach Scott Silva should be held responsible for molesting more than a dozen students under his supervision at a charter school in Van Nuys. The jury found Silva guilty on 25 criminal counts: 16 counts of child molestation, 6 counts of sexual battery, 2 counts of lewd conduct upon a child and one count of false imprisonment, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.

What’s the problem?

Though it has been more than 3 months since Silva was arrested and charged, no new information has surfaced regarding the case. The Birmingham High website described Silva as a science teacher, football kicker’s coach, and lacrosse instructor.
