Prosecutor added more allegations into the complaint against Kay Sorg at a court hearing Tuesday.
Sorg is a veteran Albany Middle School teacher charged with sexual assault on a former student of hers.
Greg Dolge, deputy district attorney of Alameda County, wrote in the complaint that there is independent evidence that “clearly and convincingly corroborated the victim’s allegations”.
There is “evidence of sexually explicit letters from the defendant to the victim, a scar reported by the victim located at or near the victim’s pubic hairline, and unusually close relationships between the defendant and the victim that included overnight stay at the defendant’s residence and out-of-town travel”, according to the latest complaint.
A previous complaint against Sorg, which didn’t specify evidence except for allegations from the victim, was regarded as insufficient by a judge of the Alameda County Superior Court last month.
At the January hearing, Sorg’s defense attorney Elizabeth Grossman argued that the prosecutor needs to specify independent evidence other than allegations from the victim in the complaint, since the alleged crime took place more than 15 years ago.
Grossman said that she would file another motion to the court to dismiss the current complaint.
The case will be heard in court again on March 20 and Judge Sandra Bean of the court will decide whether the complaint is sufficient at that time.
