Pasadena sub fired, alleged sex assault of student
PASADENA, Texas (AP) - A substitute teacher in the Houston area
has been fired as he faces charges of sexually assaulting a
14-year-old female student.
Reynaldo Martinez was in the Harris County Jail on Thursday with
bail set at $150,000.
The 30-year-old from La Porte was booked Wednesday on two counts
of having an improper relationship with a student, two counts of
sexual assault of a child between the ages of 14 and 17 and one
count of possession of child pornography.
Martinez was fired March 26 by the Pasadena Independent School
District, after a criminal complaint alleges that hours earlier he
had sexually assaulted the girl in a classroom.
The student at Bondy Intermediate School initially reported she
had exchanged sexual text messages with him earlier last week.
Electronic jail records did not list an attorney for Martinez.
