Henrico dance teacher slammed with more sex charges

Posted: Updated:
HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A popular Henrico dance teacher has been charged again with having sex with underage girls. 34-year-old Andrew Defiesta has been indicted on five counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.

Defiesta was charged with the same crime back in November after he was caught having sex with a 16-year-old female student at the dance studio where he worked.

Now, two more alleged victims have come forward. According to the indictments, the allegations stem all the way back to 2004.

Defiesta is being held without bond as he faces six counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.

Henrico Police are investigating to see if there are more victims out there.

NBC12 went to Defiesta's Chesterfield home but his wife didn't speak with us.

According to the indictments, the crimes didn't happen in Chesterfield, they happened exclusively in Henrico County.

In 2004, Defiesta wasn't teaching for Regency Dance Academy. We tried to find out where he was teaching at the time of the alleged offense but prosecutors were tight-lipped.

Defiesta's first preliminary hearing is on February 22. He also has a status hearing on February 28 for the additional five charges.
