Fired Teacher Accused of Having Sex With Student

By  | 

A former Dallas middle school teacher has been charged with sexual assault after a 14-year-old girl accused him of having sex with her.

KDFW-TV reports that Scott Paul Alcaraz is facing two counts of sexual assault. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.

Authorities say the girl has accused the 26-year-old former math teacher and assistant basketball coach of having sex with her in a classroom at Thomas C. Marsh Middle School.

The Dallas school district fired Alcaraz on Monday after his arrest last week.

Alcaraz is free on a $50,000 bond. Court records did not list an attorney for him.
