As Los Angeles police continue their investigation into a molestation case involving a popular elementary school teacher, several patterns have emerged among the alleged victims, whose numbers have grown from four to 10 in the last month. All the boys, police say, are Latino and from low-income families. They come from either single-parent homes or are being raised by two working parents who have little free time and expendable income for trips and presents.

Two brothers, now 13 and 14, squirmed in the witness chair and mumbled into a microphone Tuesday as they testified to separate, but similar, accounts of molestation by a teacher and coach at Hazeltine Avenue Elementary School in Van Nuys. Meanwhile, nine other boys, most of them wearing shorts and backward baseball caps, waited none-too-patiently outside court for their turn on the witness stand.

A Van Nuys elementary schoolteacher charged this week with molesting four male students was jailed in the 1980s in Guatemala on child-abuse allegations while working at an orphanage run by an Episcopal priest, church officials said Wednesday. The teacher, Jeffrey Herbert Raker, who taught at Hazeltine Avenue School until last week, had worked at the orphanage in Guatemala for several years before it was taken over by the church, the officials said.
