Texas Teacher Accused of Improper Relations
[Previous 8/22/11 post]
(Honey Grove, Texas) A 27-year-old teacher formerly with the Honey Grove ISD, Jordan Lane, has been accused of engaging in an improper relationship with a 14-year-old boy.

According to Chief Mark Johnson of the Honey Grove Police Department,
"the improper conduct happened after hours, after school hours. What I gathered through the investigation, the relationship started during the school year but it didn't really get deep into a relationship until the end of the year."

Honey Grove Police, along with another agency, conducted a forensic interview at the young man's home. They also spoke with local witnesses to build what they consider a strong case against Lane. The investigation that began August 2nd, 2011 is nearing a close.

"We are going to re-evaluate what I'm doing and there may possibly be different charges filed other than what I have filed," said Johnson.

Chief Johnson is working closely with Fannin County District Attorney Richard Glaser to determine if Lane will be charged with one count of having an improper relationship or several counts of aggravated sexual assault.
Lane was booked into custody and subsequently released on bond.
