CHANDLER, AZ - A high school in Chandler has placed a teacher on administrative leave after he was arrested for alleged sexual abuse.
Fifty-one-year-old Richardo Moreno was arrested on suspicion of two counts of sexual abuse for allegedly touching two female students at Basha High School while they were on campus.
The alleged incident occurred Nov. 9, but school administration did not learn of it until a 16-year-old student reported it Thursday.
Chandler police Detective Seth Tyler says Moreno was released from custody Friday. A case report was forwarded to the county attorney for review.
It's unclear whether Moreno has a lawyer yet.
