Former Band Director Pleads Guilty to Improper Relationship with Student

SINTON - The former Taft High School band director found in a motel room with his student plead guilty this morning to having an improper relationship with a student.

Roy Hinojosa, 49, was arrested last November after Sinton police got a tip they would find him at a motel with a 17-year-old student.

Authorities say that teen admitted to having sex with Hinojosa, but she's considered an adult, so charges of sexual assault were not filed.

In Texas, it is illegal for an educator to have a relationship with a student.

Hinojosa will be sentenced on May 21st.
