More victims in West End dance school sex case
HENRICO, Va. (WTVR)–A Henrico dance instructor accused of having sex with several of his underage students now faces new charges.
On Monday a grand jury indicted Andrew Defiesta on thirteen new charges, after two new victims came forward. He now faces nineteen charges total, including charges of taking indecent liberties with a minor, and possession of child pornography.
Henrico police said they arrested the dance instructor in mid-November, when someone reported walking in on the 34-year-old having sex with a 16-year-old girl at Regency Dance Academy, the studio where he taught classes.
Nancy Oglesby, with the Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office, told CBS 6 that there are a total of five victims.
