Robstown ISD Employee Indicted for Sexual Assault

Posted: Updated:
ROBSTOWN (Kiii News) -

A 28-year old Robstown school employee is facing charges of sexual assault and indecency with a child.

According to the indictment the alleged incidents happened in 2012 and 2011. It accuses a 28-year old Robstown Independent School District of sexual assault and indecency with a child.

"Basically, officers came in. They wanted to arrest him," said Yolanda Reyna of Robstown ISD. "They didn't give us any details on the arrest."

Robstown ISD officials were shocked at the news that one of their employees was facing such serious charges, but Reyna, the director of federal programs, wanted to assure parents that 28-year old Jesus Torres never came into contact with any students during the few months he has worked for the district.

Torres had been working on the renovation of the old Hattie Martin Elementary. He was indicted by a Nueces County Grand Jury this week and was taken into custody on Thursday in the school administration offices. He was charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child.

According to the indictment, the alleged incidents all happened away from the campus and did not involve students.

"We just want to reassure the parents that he did not come in contact with any children, and we are doing everything possible that we need to do to follow the law," Reyna said.

The alleged incidents happened twice in November of 2012 and once in October of 2011. If convicted of the charges, Torres could get up to 20 years in prison.

"The most important thing is to keep our students safe," Reyna said.

Torres remains in custody at the Nueces County Jail on a $50,000.
