A Prairie Middle School teacher accused of sexually assaulting five students faced more charges this week. On Aug. 28, Brian Vasquez, 34, had reached a total of 31 counts, including 11 counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, the District Attorney’s Office announced.
The earliest of the alleged crimes was committed at the Greenwood Village school in January 2013. The most recent was this month, according to the criminal complaint. No further details were included.
Vasquez, an Aurora resident, was arrested Aug. 22. He remained in the Arapahoe County jail on a $200,000 bond. Cherry Creek Schools has placed him on administrative leave.
The defendant had taught eighth-grade social studies and worked with the Destination Imagination afterschool program.

Broderick Lundie, 29, similarly faces charges of sexual assault of a child by a person in a position of trust for allegedly having oral sex and exchanging nude photos with a student at Grandview High School in Aurora, according to court records
