M i l w a u k e e – 39-year-old Milwaukee elementary school teacher, Armando Briseno-Alonso was charged for repeated sexual assault of a child starting in September 2010. Armando Briseno-Alonso faces two counts of child enticement – sexual contact or intercourse. According to the criminal complaint: The 11 year old student and his mother reported to police that text messages found on her phone between the boy and the teacher indicated sexual advances by the teacher towards her son. They reported the matter to the police because the son said that “this teacher was trying to have sex with students like him.” During a videotaped interview, the boy said Briseno had been his teacher at Rogers Street Academy, 2430 W. Rogers St., since first grade and started molesting him in third grade, usually in a different teacher’s room after regular school hours, but also twice at Briseno’s home in the 1600 block of W. Edgerton Ave. during summer visits.
Milwaukee Public Schools spokesman Tony Tagliavia said Briseno was suspended as soon as officials became aware of the allegations.
“We continue to cooperate with police and to investigate,” he said.
The school website says Briseno was a fourth-grade bilingual teacher.
Armando Briseno-Alonso entered a not-guilty plea Tuesday to a charge of repeated sexual assault of a child and two counts of child enticement-sexual contact or intercourse.
