The niece, a student at an elementary school near the high school at which Cantu teaches, told authorities that she and her uncle were driving home from school when, after an inappropriate, sexual conversation, Cantu reached over and grabbed the girl's breasts over her clothes.
According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Cantu has been a math teacher and a wrestling coach at the school for the last four years. Before teaching at Valley Vista High School, Cantu was a teacher at Sunrise Mountain High School in Peoria.
