The Cherry Creek School District has entered into a settlement agreement with the victims of Brian Vasquez, former teacher at Prairie Middle School, for the amount of $11.5 million. The parties are releasing the following joint statement:
“We acknowledge that no amount of money can right the wrongs committed against these students by Vasquez. No student should ever suffer the injury and loss of innocence that these young women suffered as a result of the reprehensible actions of Vasquez. The district is committed to doing right by these young women and their families and hopes this settlement brings some degree of closure so that they can move on with their lives and continue the healing process.”
Vasquez plead guilting July 9 to three counts of sexual assault and exploitation of his current or former female students. He had been charged with 37 counts relating to acts allegedly committed over five years.
