On April 11, 2019, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jason Bourdett, a 34 year old man from Cameron Park, for multiple violations. An investigation into Bourdett began after a former student of his came forward regarding the sexual relationship that she had with him, when she was 17 years old.  The student had met Bourdett when he was teaching at Natomas Pacific Pathways Charter School in Sacramento in 2017. The student then met with Bourdett repeatedly at his home in Cameron Park over a 6 month period.

At the time of his arrest, Bourdett was employed as a teacher with El Dorado High School. There has been no evidence found of any other victims linked to Bourdett and he has been placed on administrative leave from El Dorado High School.
