Colo. Sex Abuse Charges Follow NM School Official

Gov. Susana Martinez has ordered an immediate review of whether New Mexico school districts are conducting timely criminal background checks of new employees in light of revelations that a high-level Albuquerque district administrator was hired despite facing child sex abuse charges in Colorado. Jason Martinez resigned abruptly last week from his position as deputy superintendent for Albuquerque Public Schools before reports surfaced of the child sexual assault charges and a domestic violence accusation he is facing in Colorado.
