School officials arrested for failure to report sexual contact between students

Two Roberts-Naylor K-8 School officials have been arrested because police say they did not report sexual contact between two students.

On Tuesday the Tucson Police Department says the school’s vice principal, 45-year-old Bernadette Rosthenhausler and a school counselor, 60-year-old Linda Archuleta, were arrested. They are facing class 6 felony charges for failure to report a reportable offense.
