A seventh-grade teacher from Conroe ISD has been charged with online solicitation of a minor.
Michael Brian Crawley, 30, was caught soliciting what he thought to be a 13-year-old girl over the Internet, prosecutors said. Turns out, that girl was an undercover officer in New Mexico.
According to prosecutors, Crawley discussed multiple sex acts with the officer via chat and webcam. The first chat took place in early August, and the last on September 21.
Prosecutors said Crawley – who teaches math and science at Peete Middle School – was also actively involved with a national youth outreach group through the Methodist Church.
Investigators served a search warrant at Crawley’s home on September 24. He was taken into custody that day.
Crawley is the second Conroe ISD teacher to be arrested in the past three weeks.
Thomas Vickers, a seventh-grade history teacher, was arrested and charged with online solicitation of a minor, possession of child pornography and enticing a child on September 3.
