Teen arraigned on felony charges in Roseville High arson

Felony charges have been filed against a Roseville High School student accused of burning the graduation stage on the school’s football field prior to last week’s commencement ceremonies.

Jordan Loya, 18, pleaded not guilty Monday at his arraignment in Placer County Superior Court. His next court date is June 19. He remains in custody, with bail set at $150,000.

Loya is charged with conspiracy, arson and vandalism, all felonies, according to a Placer County District Attorney’s Office news release. He also is charged with a special allegation that he caused excessive damages in the case.

The second student arrested is a juvenile, and his case will be handled in Juvenile Court. Because of his status as a juvenile, the District Attorney’s Office declined to comment further on his case.
