AURORA — Three Cherry Creek school leaders — a principal, assistant principal and former counselor — were indicted on a charge that they failed to properly report claims of sexual assault by a teacher on a 14-year-old student and, in fact, suspended the student.

The claims arose after Aurora police arrested Prairie Middle School social studies teacher Brian Vasquez in August 2017 and accused him of physical abuse and exchanging nude photos with several students. During that investigation, a recent grand jury indictment says he admitted to sexually exploiting other students beginning in 2013.

The indictment centers on allegations made by a specific student in 2013. The student, identified as “child victim” or “CV,” said Prairie Middle School assistant principal AJ MacIntosh and principal David Gonzales told her the accusations would be devastating to Vasquez’s career.
