Taft High School Band Director Roy Hinojosa Arrested
SINTON (Kiii News) -
The Taft High School band director, 49-year old Roy Hinojosa, was arrested Friday, and is charged with having an improper relationship with a student.
Hinojosa was originally put on administrative leave, while being investigated by Sinton Police, after a tip came in that he was allegedly in a motel room with a teenage girl. He officially resigned from his position at Taft High School on Thursday.
The girl involved is said to be 17 years old, which is considered an adult, but because she is still a student, under Texas law, a teacher can not carry on a relationship with a student. To do so is a criminal offense.
