LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A Pomona city councilman who is accused of taking inappropriate pictures of female students at two elementary schools where he was a substitute teacher was charged today with five criminal counts, including possessing child pornography.

Rubio Ramiro Gonzalez, 45, is set to be arraigned Aug. 28 at the downtown Los Angeles courthouse on one felony count of possessing child pornography and four misdemeanor counts of annoying or molesting a child, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

He is accused of taking inappropriate pictures at Cortez and Arroyo elementary schools in Pomona, and allegedly had child pornography images in his email accounts, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Gonzalez was arrested May 21 following an investigation by the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation. He was released later that day on bond, jail records show.

The Daily Bulletin reported that Pomona Mayor Tim Sandoval called on Gonzalez to resign from office last month and that the City Council voted unanimously in favor of censuring the councilman following his arrest.
