BROWNSVILLE. TX (NEWS CENTER 23) — A bisd teacher is arrested on accusations that he had an inappropriate relationship with one of his former students.
Teachers crossing the line with their students.
Thirty four year old Aristeo Gutierrez is the latest educator charged with inappropriate relationship with a student.
He was a teacher and a coach at Besterio middle school in Brownsville. Investigators say he had an ongoing relationship with a former student, who was 14 at the time.
The Cameron county sheriff's office arrested him after they got word of the alleged relationship.
Authorities say the teacher gave the girl money, cell phones and other small gifts as well as love letters.
Police at this point don't believe Gutierrez had sex with the student, but that there was intimate contact both on and off campus.
With more reports of teachers crossing the line with their students, departments, like the sheriffs office, are making sure they're prepared to work cases such as these.
Gutierrez was given a 150 Thousand dollar bond.
The investigation is ongoing.
