Ex-New Mexico school administrator booked into Denver jail

DENVER (AP) — A former Albuquerque, New Mexico, school administrator who faces child sex abuse charges in Colorado has been booked into a Denver jail a day after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest.

Denver County Jail records show Timothy Jason Martinez was booked Wednesday on a no-bond hold. Authorities say he violated the terms of an earlier bond agreement when he left the state without court permission.

Martinez worked for Denver Public Schools for 10 years, ending in 2012. He was hired as Albuquerque's deputy schools superintendent in June before a background check was completed, and he resigned last week.

Martinez was arrested in Denver in the sex abuse case in 2013. Neither of the alleged victims was connected to his employment at the district.

A hearing has been set for Thursday on a motion to revoke Martinez's bond.
