Police now believe at least seven children may be alleged victims of a Gainesville teacher and swim coach who was arrested last week on charges of molestation and sexual abuse.

Gainesville police spokesman officer Ben Tobias said Tuesday afternoon that more children have been interviewed and it appears seven or possibly eight claim to have been victims of Joseph Diaz, 31, of 3003 NW 30th Terrace.

“That’s our best guess at this point,” Tobias said. “We just have to gather some evidence and do some more interviews but there will be additional charges coming.”
