SAPD ARREST HIGH SCHOOL ASSISTANT WRESTLING COACH/ACTIVITIES SUPERVISOR FOR UNLAWFUL SEX WITH A MINOR STUDENT

Suspect: Jaime Orendain (34) Santa Ana

A 34-year-old high school wrestling coach was arrested Tuesday night for having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student. The victim, who is no longer attending Santa Ana High School, claimed she had an inappropriate relationship with Jaime Oredain, a part-time assistant wrestling coach and activities supervisor for the school. During their eight-month relationship, Oredain engaged in consensual sex with the victim and many of the sexual encounters occurred on campus during school hours.

Oredain was made aware of the police investigation and immediately fled. He told school officials he was moving to San Antonio, Texas and posted a video on Instagram that made friends and family believe he was suicidal. Police responded to Oredain’s home to check on his welfare but he fled before police arrived.

After an extensive search, officers located Oredain in the riverbed near the 4000 block of west Segerstrom Avenue. Oredain was arrested without incident and booked at the Santa Ana Jail for felony statutory rape, oral copulation and digital penetration.

SAPD Detectives believe there may be additional victims and ask anyone with information contact Corporal M. Lopez at 714-245-8542, mlopez15@santa-ana.org or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS
