A former New Mexico teacher convicted of sexually abusing two fourth-grade girls more than a decade ago has been sentenced to 108 years in prison.
The Albuquerque Journal reports Gary Gregor was sentenced Thursday in a Santa Fe court.
The former Santa Fe and Espanola elementary school teacher now in his 60s faced up to 144 years in prison.
A jury in December convicted Gregor on 12 criminal counts related to the abuse and molestation of two students in an Espanola elementary school during the 2007-08 school year.
According to the Journal, Gregor still faces charges that he allegedly abused two females students while he was teaching at Agua Fria Elementary in Santa Fe during the 2003-04 school year before he was hired in Espanola.
