Additional charges have been filed against a former Inderkum High School teacher who now stands accused of multiple sex offenses with two former students.

Earlier this year, the Sacramento Police Department received a report of an alleged sexual relationship between 33-year-old Byron Wallace and a minor who was in her teens.  At the time, Wallace was a teacher at Inderkum and the victim was a student attending the school.

Following an investigation, Sacramento Police detectives, in conjunction with the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, issued a warrant for the arrest for Wallace who was taken into custody without incident on Oct. 23.

On October 27, Sacramento Police detectives were contacted by another victim who reported an alleged sex act involving Wallace while a student at Inderkum High School in 2014.

After an extensive investigation, Wallace was charged with additional sex crimes with a minor under the age of 18 by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office today, Nov. 16.

Wallace was placed on administrative leave in May 2015 and has not taught at Inderkum during the 2015-16 school year. The Natomas Unified School District reports it is in the process of terminating Wallace.

“We cannot comment on specifics of Mr. Wallace’s case, which is in the hands of the judicial system, but we do not expect him back teaching classes in Natomas Unified,” read a statement released by the school district last month

Natomas Unified School District statement on Nov. 16, 2015:

“Natomas Unified was not aware of allegations involving any other minor and is saddened to hear of these charges. Byron Wallace has not worked in Natomas Unified this school year. He was placed on administrative leave last May when the Sacramento Police Department launched its investigation. Natomas Unified announced upon his arrest that it will finalize its administrative investigation and proceed to terminate Mr. Wallace’s services with the district. NUSD will continue to cooperate with the police department, which has asked to be contacted by anyone with additional information on this case.”
