Former Taft Band Director Gets 90 Days in Jail for Relationship with Student

Former Taft High School band director Roy Hinojosa was sentenced Monday to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty in May to having a relationship with a student.

Hinojosa, 49, was sentenced at the San Patricio County Courthouse on Monday. It was back in November of 2012 when it was discovered that Hinojosa was having an improper relationship with a 17-year old girl who attended Taft High School.

In Texas, it is illegal for an educator to have a relationship with a student. Hinojosa had been a teacher in Taft for 20 years.
