A former driving instructor based on the Peninsula was sentenced to 18 years in prison for coercing teenage girls into creating pornography to distribute online and for engaging in sexual acts with some of them.
Johnnatan Zelaya Izaguirre. In his plea agreement, Izaguirre admitted to recruiting girls between the ages of 14 and 17 to create pornographic images to post online. He admitted to having sex with at least two of the girls, including one of them on video. He then distributed that video to what federal prosecutors described as a “client.” He was charged on May 1 with two counts of coercion and enticement of a minor, one count of receipt of child pornography, one count of possession of child pornography, and one count of distribution of child pornography. He pleaded guilty to all charges.
This isn’t just a driving school issue it is an issue it’s an issue for parents and kids. No one has this much access to young girls and boys and is in his place of power. We hope nothing like this has happened to you or your family members. If something has we hope you have reached out to someone about it and have received justice for this disgusting act, and if you are a parent we hope your child is doing better and we hope for the best for you.
