The situation was reported to the La Porte High School principal by a student yesterday after school. The district immediately contacted the employee and removed him from the campus pending outcome of the district’s inquiry.
The matter was referred to the La Porte Police Department. The outcome of its preliminary investigation and conversation with the District Attorney’s office is that the District Attorney is not inclined to press charges.
La Porte ISD is continuing with its inquiry in full cooperation with the La Porte Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division. The employee will remain on administrative leave with pay until the matter is resolved.
