A now-former elementary school teacher previously charged with sexual abuse of a 7-year-old student was arrested again and charged with sexually assaulting a second victim.
Victor Moreno, 28, was charged in July with continuous sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony, and an improper relationship between a student and educator, a second-degree felony.
The accused pedophile’s victim was a second-grade girl in Irving Independent School District, where Moreno was a teacher at the time of the alleged assaults during the 2020-2021 school year.
According to a report by Fox4News, Moreno was arrested again on August 25 and charged with indecency with a child after Irving police found evidence he sexually assaulted another girl when she was 13-14 years old.
Moreno left Irving ISD in 2021 after he failed to meet his certification requirements.
He was then hired by Plano Independent School District to teach at Barron Elementary in the 2021-2022 school year, but was fired for a “code of conduct violation.”
Meanwhile, a teacher’s aide in Mesquite Independent School District was arrested Tuesday after being accused of engaging in inappropriate relationships with students.
Bryan Garcia, 22, was charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child.
The alleged assaults happened last spring at North Mesquite High School. Garcia reportedly worked for the district since 2020.
According to NBCDFW, Garcia’s behavior was reported to school officials on Monday, and the school then contacted the Mesquite Police Department.
Garcia was arrested after police determined he had been communicating with students using cellphone apps.
Earlier this week, 59-year-old Tony Mattei, an Allen Independent School District middle school teacher, was arrested and charged with two counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact. Mattei previously taught at schools in neighboring Lovejoy Independent School District.
