MURRIETA - A former dormitory supervisor at a Murrieta school for troubled youths who is accused of sexually assaulting a girl and groping several others is slated to be arraigned today on felony charges.

Wesley Anthony Langdon, 23, was arrested in February following a Murrieta police investigation into allegations of sexual abuse at the Oak Grove Center for Education Treatment and the Arts on Jefferson Avenue. He is charged with two counts each of statutory rape, sexual penetration with a foreign object and annoying or molesting a child under 18. He's free on $75,000 bail.

The defendant is scheduled to appear before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Judith Clark at the Southwest Justice Center. Court records show he has not yet retained legal counsel.

According to police, Langdon became the focus of an investigation in early January after a 16-year-old girl alleged he had assaulted her. The girl apparently relayed the information to staff at Oak Grove, who immediately notified the police department.

Oak Grove is a 24-hour residential treatment center geared to adolescents with emotional, behavioral and neurological problems. According to the nonprofit's website, 76 minors live in dormitories at the Murrieta campus, where they also attend school daily.

Langdon worked as an overnight campus supervisor, according to investigators. He allegedly developed an inappropriate relationship with the 16- year-old and also harassed two other girls in the same dorm, both of whom alleged that he attempted to hug and kiss them, according to court records.

The 16-year-old alleged that on at least two separate occasions, Langdon asked her to join him in a building adjacent to the dorm, where he assaulted her.

After speaking with detectives, the youth evidently confronted Langdon about the incidents via Facebook, prompting the defendant to delete his account, police said.

He was arrested Feb. 14 and posted bail the following day. If convicted, he could face more than 30 years in prison.
