SISD fires Pebble Hills teacher accused of sexual relationship with student
EL PASO, Texas (CBS4) —
The Pebble Hills High School teacher accused of having sex with a student has been fired.
The Socorro Independent School District made Gerardo Saucedo’s termination official during Tuesday’s board meeting.
Saucedo is accused of having an ongoing relationship with a student for several years.
He was arrested in November and charged with improper relationship with a student, police said.
According to court documents, Saucedo was caught kissing and touching the student in the backseat of his car just before midnight Nov. 13 behind an east El Paso business.
Patrol officers were conducting business checks when they saw two vehicles parked next to each other behind a closed business, court documents said.
The two were found in the back seat of Saucedo’s car, and the girl said they were kissing and touching each other sexually but were not having sex, court documents said.
The girl later admitted to having sex with Saucedo in the past, the documents said.
She told authorities that the two started kissing around her freshman year in 2014 about two times a week throughout the year, the documents said.
Saucedo was jailed but released after posting a $20,000 bond.
Saucedo was also a pastor at a Socorro church.
