A former Robstown school employee, 28-year old Jesus Torres, has been cleared of child sexual assault charges. A jury acquitted him late Thursday afternoon.

It was last year when the allegations first surfaced.

School administrators say Torres never came into contact with any students during the few months that he worked for the district. He had been working on the renovation of the old Hattie Martin Elementary in Robstown.

Torres was indicted by a grand jury, but was acquitted in district court.
