Albuquerque, NM –

On August 31, 2023, a jury found Danny Aldaz, 47, guilty of two counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child under 13, and 2 counts of criminal sexual contact.

In 2018 and 2019, Aldaz raped a seven-year-old little girl, which was also one of his students. The crimes happened inside Aldaz’s classroom, where he taught second grade in Albuquerque.

Jurors cleared Aldaz of a fifth felony count related to witness bribery.

Sentencing will take place at a later date, but according to the sentencing guidelines, he faces between 50-57 years in prison for this case.

Bernalillo County District Attorney Sam Bregman said “I’m so proud of our Special Victim’s Unit, who prosecuted Aldaz. I look forward to this man spending a long time in prison.”

According to NM courts and criminal complaints that we viewed, this is just one of many trials Aldaz faces on similar charges involving other students. Aldaz is still confronted with a staggering 27 felony charges, stemming from allegations of abusing four more girls between 2013 and 2019. Aldaz’s legal journey is far from over, as he is slated to undergo four additional trials scheduled to take place through February.
