No-contest plea for ex-teacher
LOS LUNAS — A former Belen teacher has pleaded no contest to two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after authorities say he tried to lure a 15-year-old girl into having alcoholic drinks with him.
The Albuquerque Journal reports 42-year-old Manuel G. Martinez III pleaded to the charges Tuesday.
Los Lunas police arrested Martinez last March after police used a teenage girl’s phone to send text messages to Martinez.
