CORPUS CHRISTI - We have continuing coverage on the West Oso High School teacher accused of sending inappropriate text messages to a female student. Earlier this month, the West Oso School Board voted to fire Christopher Williams, but Williams has appealed his termination.
District officials tell us that Williams has hired a lawyer with a law firm out of Austin, and will have a special hearing with an examiner appointed by the Texas Education Agency within 10 days.
It's expected that hearing will finally determine whether or not Williams will lose his job.
As we've reported, Williams' name has come up in at least four other incidents going back to 2005, including two arrests, but only one conviction.
Williams was placed on paid administrative leave back on January 14th, meaning that it's been forty-five days since the district's investigation began, and Williams has been getting paid the entire time.
And again, there could be up to 10 more days before that T.E.A hearing takes place.
