Cancun elementary school teacher sentenced to 100 years in prison

Cancun, Q.R. — A second guilty verdict has resulted in another 50-year prison sentence being handed down to a previous Cancun elementary school teacher who is already serving time for rape.

In a press release, la Fiscalía General del Estado reports that Jahziel Eloy Yam Estrella has been given a second 50-year prison sentence after he was recently found guilty of raping a six-year old child.

La Fiscalía General del Estado explained that due to evidence presented, prosecutors specializing in Crimes Against Women were able to prove the second case.

The charges stem from his time as a school teacher in 2017 when he was accused of raping the two students in classrooms. He was originally sentenced to 50 years in January of 2018 for the first guilty verdict of rape.

The second and latest charge, was handed down Friday.
