The alleged victims, now adults, denounced the Colombian gym teacher. One of them, under sworn statement, revealed that when she was 10 years old she was his student. and that, at 14, he touched her inappropriately. In addition to Over time the situation escalated to sexual intercourse.

According to the police report, another victim indicated that she had been abused by the teacher when she was also 14 years old.

“Allegations of sexual abuse with minors are extremely serious. If the victim is 12 years old or older, up to 17 years old, there is a law that could make the accused face up to 30 years in prison“said Albert Quirantes, criminal lawyer.

In the middle of the hearings, the Colombian’s lawyer asked the judge to grant him bailbecause his client surrendered to the authorities and had no intention of leaving the country.

However, the allegations were not valid and Mindy Glazer denied him bail: “Another judge will decide when the final hearing on pretrial detention will be held. Today I find probable cause for both cases.”.
