More Charges Filed Against Former AISD Teacher

Updated: Monday, June 23 2014, 05:47 PM CDT

Margarita Gallegos says she won't send her daughter to Walnut Creek Elementary School.

Her child is only three but she wants to move. Gallegos has two older children who already went to Walnut Creek Elementary.

She doesn't feel her daughter would be safe at the school after new allegations.

Police arrested Alfredo Andrade-Gaytan last week.

He's accused of assaulting a six-year-old child at Reilly Elementary School while teaching summer school.

Since then, four more students have come forward from his home school, Walnut Creek Elementary.

Of those allegations, AISD police say there is enough evidence for two new charges.

Police rearrested him this weekend.

He is now in a jail in Brenham, Texas waiting to be extradited to Travis County.

"The two new allegations are both indecency with a child, second degree felonies," says AISD Police Chief Eric Mendez.

One arrest affidavit says a nine-year old victim identified the suspect as her third grade teacher, Andrade-Gaytan.

The child also told investigators Andrade touched her at least four times during the last school year, sometime before Christmas break.

Another eight-year-old female said Andrade-Gaytan also inappropriately touched her this spring.

AISD police believe there could be more victims, but the parents are afraid to come forward.

"We're not concerned about your immigration status, we want you to come forward if you have concerns, let us help your child," says Chief Mendez.
