Lufkin — Former Hudson High School debate teacher Jesus Gonzalez, 23, has just turned himself in on charges he had an improper relationship with a 17-year-old female student. According to an affidavit, an exchange took place between Gonzalez and the girl on a school trip to Austin in March and again in a car in Hudson a week later.
According to Hudson ISD superintendent Mary Ann Whiteker, Gonzalez resigned when allegations were made known.
Angelina County District Attorney Clyde Herrington said in 2009 a law was passed making sexual relationships between an educator and student illegal no matter the student’s age.
Gonzales is out of the Angelina County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
