A man who worked as a teacher's aide has pleaded no contest to lewd acts with a child.

Four other charges were dismissed.

Edward Gonzalez and the victim, who was 15 years old, both attended a party last May at a vacant house in east Bakersfield, police said. From there, police said the two went to Gonzalez's house, where the lewd acts took place.

At the time, Gonzalez worked at Sierra Middle School. The victim is a former student at that school.
