IRVING, Texas — A 28-year-old former teacher in Irving accused of continuous sex abuse of a young child has been released from jail on bond, police said.

Irving police said Victor Hugo Moreno, a second-grade teacher in the Irving Independent School District, who resigned at the end of the 2021 school year, was arrested on July 21, after he allegedly assaulted one of his 7-year-old female students.

Moreno taught in the Plano Independent School District for the 2021-22 school year and was fired because of a code of conduct violation, Irving police said in a news release. Police said it did not receive the outcry about the 2020-21 Irving ISD incident until the spring semester of the 2021-22 school year. 

Irving police said in a news conference that they found Moreno did student teaching and tutoring prior to his employment with Irving ISD.

Moreno was given a $10,000 bond for the continuous sex abuse of a young child charge and a $5,000 bond for improper relationship between and student and educator, police said. 

Moreno bonded out of jail and was not in custody as of July 28, according to police. 

“Seeing someone like this get such a low bond from Dallas County and being able to bond out so easily is disappointing,” an Irving police spokesperson said in a news conference. “I would say someone who is committing crimes against children is definitely someone who should have a higher bond.”

Police said they believe there are additional victims of Moreno, and they’re encouraging anyone whose child could have interacted with him at either Irving ISD or Plano ISD to have those discussions with their children, family members and friends. 

Police ask that if anyone knows a victim, or is a victim of Moreno to contact the Irving Police Department at (972)273-1010 if you live in Irving, the Plano Police Department at (972)424-5678 if you live in Plano or call 911.
