A middle school teacher and coach in San Antonio has been arrested after being found in a hotel room with a 15-year-old girl.
Crystal Nicole Rodriguez, 29, was charged with engaging in an improper relationship between an educator and student, reported KSAT.
Although officials with the San Antonio Independent School District could not go into great detail because the case involves a minor, they have confirmed that Rodriguez worked as a special education teacher at Page Middle School.
Spokeswoman Leslie Price told KSAT 12 News that Rodriguez was only in her second year teaching at the school and she also worked as a coach with the girls’ basketball, soccer, volleyball and track teams.
Price also said the girl involved is a former Page Middle School student.
According to police records, Rodriguez “admitted to having a sexual relationship” with the teen when the two were found in the hotel room.
After the President’s Day holiday, school officials began notifying parents about the arrest.
Jail records show Rodriguez posted a $20,000 bond and was released from custody Sunday.
Price said the suspect was expected to meet with SAISD’s human resources department.
