(Albuquerque, New Mexico) On Friday, former teacher Kristy Sanchez-Trujillo, 35, was sentenced to community custody for rape and child molestation of a 13-year-old male student.
State prosecutor Nicholas Marshall asked that the former teacher be given the maximum on the plea deal, which was five years, for the for the 2009 rape of her then-13-year-old student.District Judge Reed Sheppard said Sanchez-Trujillo's gender did not influence his sentence. He said it therefore it must be so.
The then-33-year-old married mother admitted she took the boy to the Petroglyphs National Monument and had sex with him on a couple occasions in her SUV.
"The fact that the parents entrust these people who care for them, this individual violated that trust and so it was our hope that she was going to serve a period of incarceration," Marshall said.
The judge handed down a 24-year sentence but dismissed all but 364 days. The former mid-school teacher will serve that one year at home on an ankle monitor.
