Alvin ISD Texas teacher Steven Cortez behind bars on child sex assault charge

I could do a story about his kind of thing every day. 
That’s how bad this epidemic is.  But, it never gets a national debate.  That’s reserved for Catholic priests.    

ABC 13 reports an Alvin ISD junior high teacher is facing felony charges after he was arrested on allegations of having an inappropriate relationship with a child.

Steven Cortez, 28, was arrested Monday and charged with sexual assault of a child. In a letter sent to parents, Harby Jr. High Principal Lisa Burns says administrators were made aware of the allegations over the Easter weekend.

"The report alleged that a Harby Jr. High teacher/coach was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a female student," the letter stated.

Kelly Sombrano has a nephew that attends Harby Jr. High. She says her sister told her about what happened.

"My nephew goes to the junior high and she said they received an email that a science teacher and coach had resigned today for an inappropriate relationship with a seventh grader," Sombrano said.
