A former teacher at Killeen High School has been arrested after police say he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student for about nine months.
Samuel Antonio Caines, Junior, 55, was placed on administrative leave in February when Killeen police detectives started this investigation.
This week, Caines was charged with inappropriate relationship between educator and student, which is a second degree felony.
He was arrested at his home in Killeen and placed under $100,000 bond.
Caines was released after posting bond.
Police say additional charges are pending, and Caines is no longer a teacher at the Killeen Independent School District.
