School officials were tight-lipped Tuesday about allegations that a teacher at Portola Hills Elementary molested four boys, two of them students at the Trabuco Canyon school and two earlier at a Huntington Beach school. Jason Abhyankar, 26, pleaded not guilty Monday to four counts of inappropriately touching children under the age of 14, said Tori Richards, spokeswoman for the Orange County district attorney's office. All of the alleged incidents took place on school grounds, she said.
