Ernesto Montemayor: ROTC Instructor Had Sex with Teen Student, Including in the Classroom
Police have arrested a 56-year old former ROTC instructor at Pasadena High, for repeatedly having sex with a teenaged student.
Ernesto Montemayor, a former Marine gunnery sergeant according to reports, was arrested in San Antonio.
Court documents filed here in Harris County say that Montemayor had sex with a student who was 16 when the activity started. The sex began three months after they began "dating," the teen told investigators; Montemayor had sex with her in his apartment ten times in the summer and fall of 2010.
Montemayor also had her perform oral sex on three different occasions in a Pasadena High classroom, the teen said.
A teacher noticed the pair were often in the classroom with the doors closed and shades drawn and reported it to school officials, according to court documents. Montemayor denied any sexual activity, the court documents say, but he resigned from the school in February 2011.
The court documents also say Montemayor and the teen exchanged 1,444 cell phone calls between April 2010 and February 2011.
He is charged with improper relationship with a student and sexual assault of a child aged 14 to 17.
