SAN PATRICIO COUNTY -- A pretrial hearing for the former Taft High School band director is scheduled for later this morning.
Police arrested 49-year-old Roy Hinojosa last November after authorities found him in a motel room with one of his students.
Last month, a judge indicted Hinojosa on a charge of having an inappropriate relationship with a student. He's accused of having sex with a 17-year-old girl.
According to police, the teenager told officers she met Hinojosa at the Best Western in Sinton and had sex with him.
No one filed sexual assault charges, because the girl is 17-years-old and is considered an adult. But, in Texas, it is illegal for an educator to have a relationship with a student.
