Santa Fe, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas announced that Gary Gregor, the
teacher who sexually assaulted multiple students in Rio Arriba County was sentenced to more
than a century in prison. In December, AG Balderas successfully secured multiple convictions
against Gregor, for sexually assaulting 4th grade students during the 2007-2008 school year at
Fairview Elementary School.
“Dangerous criminals who harm children deserve to be behind bars,” said Attorney General
Hector Balderas. “We will always fight to give a voice to sexual abuse survivors.”
A jury of Gregor’s peers found him guilty of 3 counts of 1st-Degree Felony Criminal Sexual
Penetration of a Minor, 5 counts of 1st-Degree Kidnapping, and 4 counts of 3rd Degree Criminal
Sexual Contact of a Minor.
The New Mexico Office of the Attorney General has two additional pending trials against
Gregor for additional alleged crimes against children. Those trials are set for later this year.
