Through investigation, it was learned that John LeBaron had contacted the juvenile male via the internet and planned a meeting where they would exchange sexual favors.
The community is enraged by the sexual abuse allegations since piano classes are offered to children in their home through Karine LeBaron Murrieta Piano Studio. LaBaron was arrested for contacting a minor with intent to commit specific crimes and lewd act with a child under 14-years-old with force or fear.
