Arambula Trial Continues With 6-Year-Old Daughter, School Staff Testifying

Assemblyman Joaquin Arambula’s criminal trial continued Tuesday with a second daughter testifying. Arambula is accused of alleged child abuse after his 7-year-old daughter, who testified Friday and Monday, told school officials back in December that he slapped her, causing a bruise on her face. Arambula’s 6-year-old daughter, whose name we are withholding because she’s a minor, took the stand Tuesday. The prosecution asked her how she’s punished when she gets in trouble. She said she gets time out, but after continued questioning, she said sometimes her dad squeezes her so hard that it hurts. She said she has seen her two siblings get squeezed by their father as well. Staff members from Dailey Elementary School also testified Tuesday, including the officer manager who reported the alleged abuse to Child Protective Services. The trial continues this morning.
