NORTH LAS VEGAS -- Investigators say a North Las Vegas music teacher inappropriately touched seven of his students. The District Attorney's office says it will charge 54-year-old Jeremiah Mazo with 10 additional child molestation counts, meaning Mazo faces 32 counts of child molestation.
All of the incidents allegedly happened during Mazo's time as a teacher at Hayden Elementary. Prosecutors say Mazo's pattern of inappropriate behavior at the school stems back nearly three years.
The seven students who came forward said Mazo touched them inappropriately on dozens of occasions. One of the victims was an 8-year-old girl.
Mazo's alleged contact with her alone resulted in 22 separate charges against the teacher who was teaching music at Hayden Elementary up until he was arrested in late April.
