From the Office of the Attorney General News:

SANTA FE — Attorney General Hector Balderas has announced that Gary Gregor, former teacher in the Española School District, was sentenced to six years of incarceration for his sexual assault of a second grade student at Fairview Elementary School during the 2006-07 school year.

A jury found him guilty of 3rd-Degree Felony Criminal Sexual Contact of a Minor under 13 years old.

“Our office stands with all of the brave survivors of sexual abuse,” Balderas said. “The Office of the Attorney General will continue to vigorously prosecute those who prey upon children.”

As a result of the sentencing, Gregor will serve six additional years of incarceration on top of a 108-year prison sentence already ordered in a prior case.

The New Mexico Office of the Attorney General previously convicted the defendant for kidnapping and multiple counts of sexual abuse against children. Gregor faces one more trial related to additional allegations of child sexual assault. This trial is set to proceed in April 2020.

The case was investigated by the New Mexico Office of the Attorney General and prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Brittany DuChaussee and Peter Valencia.
