Volunteer Sexting Investigation Continues

Yakima Police continue to investigate the arrest of a school employee accused of sending sexual text messages to a 17-year-old girl. Yakima School District employee Miguel Osuna passed repeated background checks. Osuna also volunteered at Yakima Police Activities League (YPAL) and once worked for the YMCA. Our news partner KIMA Action News reports if Facebook is any indicator, Miguel Osuna has a passion for boxing. Photo after photo shows Osuna dressed for a match. Several show him with students at YPAL where he volunteered as a coach for years. It is also where police say he met the 17-year-old girl.

“When you hear about this, it shakes all of us,” says YPAL Director Linda Kraft.

“We got no complaints,” says board President Ed Shoenbach. “We got no complaints to investigate.”

When Kraft and Shoenbach got word of the arrest, they sprang into action.

“He will not be allowed to set foot on our premises or at any event,” says Shoenbach.

Kraft tells us Osuna passed a background check when he was hired and passed another this year. A background check is required every two years.

Osuna was not just a volunteer boxing coach at YPAL. He was also a substitute teacher’s aide at Davis High School. Yakima Police don’t think the girl involved is a student in the Yakima School district. Miguel Osuna’s arraignment is scheduled for May 17.
