McQuigg was employed by the Milpitas Unified School District until 2018.

He was arrested at his San Mateo home on Tuesday and was booked into jail on several counts of felony sexual assault.

Detectives believe there could be additional victims. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Milpitas police at (408) 586-2500.
