RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say a former Rio Rancho High School janitor has confessed to child rape. Gary Briceno, 56, is jailed on multiple counts.

Briceno was fired in August, a day after he was indicted.
According to the Rio Rancho Observer, the victims were three girls ages 6 to 16.
The alleged crimes happened between 1992 and 2012.
Court records show Briceno is facing a total of 24 counts.
He’s scheduled to be arraigned next Monday in Sandoval County Court.
