Santa Fe, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas secured multiple convictions against Gary Gregor, a former elementary teacher at Agua Fria Elementary School in Santa Fe. A jury found him guilty of four counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor, and one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor. This is the third trial that the Attorney General’s Office has successfully prosecuted against Gregor for molesting elementary students.

“I honor every one of the survivors of these horrendous crimes who were able to confront this serial sex offender,” said Attorney General Hector Balderas. “My team of prosecutors was able to tell the story of these survivors, and ensure that Gregor will never molest another child.”

As a result of today’s conviction, Gregor faces an additional 84 years of incarceration on top of a 114-year prison sentence already ordered in two prior cases for molesting elementary students. Sentencing will take place at a later date.

The case was investigated by the New Mexico Office of the Attorney General and prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Caitlin Dillon, Mark Probasco, and Peter Valencia.
