ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – An accused child predator could be getting a plea deal later this month.

Anthony Padilla is set to have the many cases against him merged into one plea deal — that’s set to be heard in court April 28.

Padilla is accused of sexually assaulting six children between one and 8-years-old. Five are said to have contracted diseases from Padilla.

He’s been in custody since 2019. The cases involve children from Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, and Española.
