According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, Birmingham Community Charter High School (BCCHS) girls lacrosse coach Scott Silva is currently being held in the Men’s Central Jail facility after attending his pretrial hearing on March 5.

Previously, a bench warrant was out for Silva’s arrest after he failed to appear in court for his last five hearings. The bench warrant, however, was recently recalled at the March 5 court hearing, according to an email from Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office spokesman Frank Mateljan.

Silva’ trial has not begun as his next court date is set for April 5 at the Van Nuys Municipal Court Division 113. His bail is currently set at $595,000 according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department inmate information center.

Silva was arrested on Nov. 16 last year and is currently charged with 30 counts of sexual misconduct against minors. A restraining order was filed against Silva to stay at least 100 yards away from BCCHS and Daniel Pearl Magnet High School (DPMHS) along with the 13 named victims.

On Feb. 25, teens from the Change the Talk program came to DPMHS to educate students on sexual violence and sexual misconduct. They also reminded students that everyone under the Los Angeles Unified School District is a mandated reporter.

If anyone has any information regarding this case, please call the Sexually Exploited Child Unit, Juvenile Division at (213) 486-0580, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
