Former Cypress-Fairbanks Teacher Sentenced To 8 Years In Prison For Having Sex With Student

A former math teacher in Cypress-Fairbanks was sentenced to eight years in prison on Friday after he admitted having sexual assault of a child with a 16-year-old student in his class.

The Incident

The defendant, aged 31, pleaded guilty when his trial started on Tuesday. He was charged with a felony on two accounts of sexual assault of a child who is under 17. The defendant admitted that the student and he had sex at least two times in his car. Earlier in the week, the victim testified that the teacher pressured her into having sex with him after traveling with her to Bear Creek Park during her junior year in 2015.

Testification by Defendant

The defendant pleaded guilty and testified in his own defense. He told the jurors that the teen was “in control” of their relationship and she seduced him. His defense attorneys were James Kan and Don Nguyen. They demanded a more lenient verdict, pointed out the teen remained close to the teacher even after the encounters ended. She also enrolled in another semester to have classes in him and sat next to him during lunchtime tutorials. The victim also continued messaging him even after the encounters have ended.


Meanwhile, prosecutor Ashley Guice noted that the defendant picked the girl up from her home, drove to Bear Creek Park in northwest Houston and had sex at least twice there. She also pointed that the defendant had a habit of being close to the female students. Also, he sent them messages on social media. He used these techniques to manipulate their emotions to commit sexual assault of a child.

Cypress-Fairbanks ISD officials began investigating the Cypress Ridge High School math teacher in November 2016 after receiving an anonymous tip. The former teacher was later arrested after he admitted to the sex and said it was consensual.

Utah Police Officer Who Handcuffed, Dragged Nurse Fired

A police officer in Utah was fired on Tuesday after a released video shows him excessive use of force while handcuffing a nurse because she refused to allow a blood draw in an incident.

Salt Lake City Police Chief David Mathis fired Detective Andrew   Ross after an internal investigation revealed he violated department policies while arresting nurse Amy North and dragged her screaming from the hospital, Salt Lake City police department’s Sgt. Boris   Chapman said.

Mathis said in a disciplinary statement said he was “deeply troubled” by Ross’s conduct. He also described Ross’s actions “unreasonable, inappropriate, unwarranted, discourteous, and disrespectful.” Mathis continued that Ross’s actions were extremely unprofessional especially given the fact he has been working for the department for 27 years. Mathis also questioned his ability to serve the public and the department effectively.

Ross’s attorney David Underwood said his client has worked in the department for nearly 30 years and questioned whether Ross deserved to be terminated because of his behavior. Meanwhile, Ross’s supervisor, Lt. Jack Hodges, was demoted to officer. Mathis, in his disciplinary letter, said he made this decision because Hodges ordered Payne to arrest North without considering the facts of the situation and the law. Hodges earned commendations for drug and burglary investigations.

The case received widespread attention after North, and her lawyer released the police body-camera videos in late August. The footage showed North explaining that it’s the hospital policy to show a warrant or formal consent to draw blood from the patient who was a victim of a car accident.  The patient wasn’t a suspect of any wrongdoing.

The officers are given five business days to appeal the chief’s decisions.

Video Footage Shows Former Las Vegas Police Officer Shoving Woman

Las Vegas Police have released body camera footage after a former Police officer pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor case on Thursday. The profanity-laden video shows then-Metropolitan Police Department officer Edward Alford, 50, assaulting a woman near Tropicana Avenue and Interstate 15 early morning of Jan. 6, 2015. Alford was ousted from his position from Metropolitan Police Department in September the same year.

On Friday evening, the Metro released the previously unseen footage of Alford’s encounter with a woman whom he suspected was working as a prostitute. The 3-minute, 23-second video was released after Alford’s criminal case had been closed, the Metro said in a statement.  Alford can face up to a year behind bars and a $100,000 fine.

The video shows Alford getting out of his patrol car and calling the woman. After getting her attention, Alford attempted to handcuff her after showing her his taser. Alford is scheduled to be sentenced in January. The prosecutors said he could no longer work as a Police officer after the end of his sentence.

Initially, Alford was charged with violating the civil rights of the woman after he used excessive force during arrest her in January 2015 and falsified reports of his encounter.  The woman was also charged with loitering and littering, but those charges were later dismissed.

If you have been arrested or facing criminal charges, an effective defense can be the deciding factor between a prison sentence and a reduced or dismissed charge. If you’ve been arrested or facing a criminal law defense case (such as immigration, criminal offense, deportation, DWI or DUI, theft, assault, drug-related assaults, etc.), it’s also crucial that you know your rights.
