“Never in a million years would I have imagined issuing a public statement to address allegations of sexual misconduct involving Mr. Flores and our innocent little girls,” Jason David said.

“The STARS family has a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct and we have severed all ties with Mr. Flores. Additionally, we are cooperating fully with the investigation by the Santa Ana Police Department,” the academy added. in the caption of David’s video message, “We all still have a lot of questions and at the moment, not a lot of answers.
