Cambridge primary school teacher to face trial for child rape

A Cambridge primary school teacher accused of allegedly raping two girls is expected to appear in court on Monday morning.

Jorge Alexis Bonilla is expected to be arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court on two counts, including two counts of aggravated rape of a child and three counts of forcible rape of a child, in connection with the assaults of two female victims under the age of 14 in 2014 and 2015., according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.

The prosecutor’s office noted that the two female victims were both known to Bonilla.

While Bonilla most recently worked at Amigos School in Cambridge as a teacher, Cambridge Public Schools said he was not a teacher there at the time of the alleged assaults.

Bonilla was placed on administrative leave after the school learned of the accusations.

“Cambridge Public Schools has learned that a teacher at Amigos School has been accused of sexual assault. It is important to note that the district’s hiring process includes criminal record checks and national criminal background fingerprint checks, in addition to personal and professional references, as well as educational and employment background checks,” a a CPS spokesperson said in a statement.

His arraignment is scheduled for 10 a.m.
