COLLEGE STATION, Texas An A&M Consolidated High School senior has been charged with indecent exposure, after students said they saw him expose himself in class.
Investigators said on March 18, several female students told their teacher after class they'd seen Jose Efrain Licea Hernandez, 18, exposing and attempting to gratify himself.
Hernandez was immediately removed from the classroom, and the police took over.
"We began to take action. Obtaining statements from witnesses, and forwarded it on to our criminal investigations division," said Chuck Fleeger with the College Station Police Department.
Hernandez was later arrested, but has since posted bond.
News 3 paid a visit to his home in College Station, but Hernandez wasn't in the talking mood.
"I really don't want to talk about it," said Hernandez.
As police investigated the case, police said they discovered Hernandez had exposed himself to another student just a day before this incident.
Fleeger said crimes like this are bad enough on their own, but made worse by these type of circumstances.
"No matter where this would have occurred, it would be disturbing," said Fleeger. "But having it occur in the school is a concern for ourselves and the school district, I'm sure."
Indecent exposure is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in the county jail.
