HOUSTON (FOX 26)
The Harris County District Attorney's Office has arrested a Sharpstown High School tutor following an HISD Police investigation into reports that he engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a student.
Aldo Leiva, 51, is facing a felony charge of sexual performance by a child and possession of child pornography.
The allegations of inappropriate conduct were first reported in February. School administrators immediately notified HISD Police. Leiva resigned when he was made aware of the allegations.
HISD Police conducted a thorough investigation and presented the findings to the District Attorney's Office. The charges were accepted and a warrant was issued Friday.
HISD takes situations such as this very seriously, as the safety of students is always the district's top priority.
The mother of the female student at Sharpstown High School found pictures on her daughter's phone of her kissing Leiva.
Police confiscated both phones and found several nude photos and sexual conversations between the student and the teacher who is a math tutor at the school.
Leiva was taken into custody, but is now out on bond.
