A little girl wrote a letter to Santa as part of a class assignment. Along with wishing for the usual things like dollbabies, a pony, and a new video game, the little girl pleaded with Santa to please make her creepy relative stop molesting her and her sister. As a result, a computer class teacher from Texas is now in jail.
From the AP here:
Police in south Texas say a 9-year-old girl’s letter to Santa may have finally stopped a nightmare of sexual abuse for her and her 10-year-old sister.
For four years, Andres Enrique Cantu sexually abused the girls in their bedrooms while they slept or did their homework. Cantu is a computer lab aide at an alternative high school.
The 9-year-old’s plea to Santa, written as a school assignment, launched the investigation and led to the first charge of continuous sexual abuse last week. On Tuesday, Cantu was accused of abusing the girl’s older sister, who was also mentioned in the letter.
According to the affidavit, the letter was described as “a wish list to Santa” asking that the girl’s relative stop touching her and her sister.
Cantu had worked in the neighboring McAllen Independent School District for 11 years, most recently in the computer lab at Lamar Academy. He was arrested at the school Friday.
Continuous sexual abuse is a first-degree felony that carries a mandatory sentence of at least 25 years and up to 99 years in prison.
Ho ho DIAF. I have a feeling that Cantu is about to experience some of his own “continuous sexual abuse” behind bars. And yet again, another teacher caught sticking it to kids.
