Prosecutors accuse a suspended high school administrator of soliciting sex from six female students via text message.
James Camden McKinney, 48, charged in November with online
solicitation of a minor, turned himself in this week after learning of new charges.
The Porter High School assistant principal was arraigned Wednesday on four charges of improper relations between an educator and a student. Later, a prosecutor spokesman says three more charges were brought against McKinney - indecency with a child, online solicitation of a minor and another improper relations charge.
He remained jailed Thursday on $510,000 bond, an amount his attorney tells the Brownsville Herald is too high.
"This is a man with deep roots; he is not a flight risk. We plan on fighting this till the end," attorney Robert Garza said.
