Fourth student comes forward alleging former APS teacher of abuse

Crime

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A former Albuquerque Public Schools teacher is now charged with sexually abusing a fourth student. Danny Aldaz, 45, had been employed with APS since 2005 and taught at several schools in the area.

Earlier this year, he was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two students, in two different school years. Then a third alleged victim who Aldaz taught at Helen Cordero Elementary school also came forward.

Now, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office says there is a fourth victim. BCSO reports that they were contacted on May 3, 2021 by a parent regarding the former teacher.

The reporting parent was reportedly unaware of Aldaz’s prior arrests when her daughter disclosed being abused by her former second-grade teacher. Aldaz was arrested for the third time in reference to the fourth victim on June 14, 2021.

BCSO detectives are now seeking any information regarding any possible additional victims of Aldaz.
