Marcos Cantu, a teacher, is accused of sexually abusing his 13-year-old niece.
A teacher at a Surprise high school was arrested earlier today for allegedly sexually abusing his 13-year-old niece.

Marcos Cantu, 39, a teacher at Valley Vista High School is Surprise, has been charged with one count of sexual abuse for allegedly groping his niece as he drove her home from school.

The niece, a student at an elementary school near the high school at which Cantu teaches, told authorities that she and her uncle were driving home from school when, after an inappropriate, sexual conversation, Cantu reached over and grabbed the girl's breasts over her clothes.

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Cantu has been a math teacher and a wrestling coach at the school for the last four years. Before teaching at Valley Vista High School, Cantu was a teacher at Sunrise Mountain High School in Peoria.

The MCSO says it's received no information that Cantu abused anyone else, but say there could be more victims.

Anyone with information about more potential victims of Cantu's is asked to call the MCSO at 602 876 1087.

He also did it to his wife's little sister when she was 12. How much evidence do you all need? This predator needs to be locked up for a long time.

I've known Mark, his wife, and their family for over 15 years and I know he'd never do anything like this.

The accuser recanted her story during the trial. It was made up as she wanted attention at the expense of mr cantu & his family. His name will b cleared during the appeal.

Just because a teacher is nice and cool what makes people think he would never do something like this. Because he's niece is not the only girl he try to talk to but most people don't know him like some of us do so don't think he's not capable of doing something likee tht because he isssss!

BabiixBrii, how can you say for sure he wouldn't do nothing like that? Obviously they had enough evidence to arrest him. How do you think that little girl feels about people like you not believing her? This is why a lot of rapes go unreported, because the victims think that no one will believe them.. Maybe someday the same thing will happen to you... and nobody will believe you. how you finna feel about that then?

I don't believe this is true. There has to be some kind of misunderstanding here. I had Mr. Cantu as a teacher for three of my math classes at Sunrise Mountain and I refuse to believe that he would do something like this. More investigation is needed.

why would a girl lie about her own uncle doing that though? it's embarrassing enough to be touched like that but by a family member..really? Anyone can be shady.
