ABILENE, Texas  –  A Taylor County grand jury has indicted 31-year-old former Abilene High School teacher Breanne Brown on a charge of second-degree felony sexual assault of a child.

A second-degree-felony is punishable by two to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.  Probation is also possible.

Brown resigned from Abilene ISD in January. That’s when she was arrested for second-degree felony sexual assault.

According to Abilene police, Brown had sex with a 16-year-old boy on at least 10 different occasions.

Brown’s case led to the resignation of former Abilene ISD Superintendent Heath Burns, who pleaded guilty in August to a charge of failure to report child abuse by a professional and possession of a controlled substance by fraud.

Burns was sentenced to three years of probation, ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and instructed to turn over his Texas educator certificate.

Burns resigned suddenly in February after he was criticized for the district’s handling of cases involving alleged improper relationships between educators and students.

In September 30-year-old Michael Trook, a former dean with Abilene ISD, pleaded guilty to one count of improper relationship between a teacher and a student.

He was originally charged with two counts, but the state waived one in the plea deal.

Trook was sentenced to 15 days in jail and 10 years of deferred adjudication probation.

He also had to permanently surrender his teaching certificate and had to pay a $2,500 fine.

Trook was indicted in April.

According to a complaint filed with the district attorney’s office the charges stemmed from a sexual relationship, Trook had with a 17-year-old female student in his office at Holland Medical School around Dec. 10, 2014.

In September Abilene High School Principal Jennifer Raney was reassigned to the Curriculum Department in the AISD administration building.

According to a news release from Superintendent David Young, Raney was moved temporarily while the district proceeds with an internal review of the “events that happened last school year.”

Also in September, AISD Associate Superintendent for Legal and Human Resources Mark Neal was named a suspect in an investigation by the Taylor County District Attorney’s Office related to the handling of an improper relationship between a student and a teacher, according to Abilene police.

YOU Can Make A Difference Today

Yesterday can NOT be changed, all that matters is what is done from this point on.

How can we put an end to Bullying when DAY AFTER DAY, another parent loses the only income for the home, or is forced to take a cut in pay, then obviously one of the first cuts in expenses for the family will be the child’s phone or possibly internet, or the badly needed pair of shoes.

Why is it such a NON-ISSUE that 75% of the population make less money every year than the year before, and if you don’t believe this, count the money in your pocket every day, AFTER EXPENSES.

How can health insurance rise by at least 100%, when, in-effect, GROUP RATES MAKE INSURANCE CHEAPER????

YES, GROUP RATES, SINCE EVERY CITIZEN OF THE U.S.A. HAS TO HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE, AND WE ARE ALL CITIZENS, SO THEREFORE WE ARE A GROUP.

I hope you are finally listening, because we are in this together, and this lifeboat is leaking.  WE can make it, but we have to work together.  We can still have disagreements between neighbors, but some things are more important and need to be taken care of immediately.

PRICES NEED TO REFLECT AND BE WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF THE LAWS OF THIS LAND, AND THESE LAWS ARE WHAT GUARANTEES THE FREEDOMS AFFORDED AS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN!!!!

DROP THE PRICE OF HEALTH INSURANCE BACK TO PRICES BEFORE THIS UNDER-THE-COUNTER DEAL, AND THEN GIVE US ALL A STANDARD PRICE PER PERSON ON A GROUP PLAN, WITH NO HMOs.

DROP THE ERR-MARK ON CORN FOR 10 YEARS.

PUT THE COAL FIRED PLANTS BACK ON LINE FOR 10 YEARS.

BRING BACK COMPANIES FOR JOBS AT A GUARANTEED NUMBER PER YEAR, STARTING WITH OUR STEEL PLANTS WHERE METALS ALWAYS, YEAR AFTER YEAR, MET GOVERNMENT STANDARDS.

DO NOT RELEASE ANY ONE FROM PRISON EARLY, IT IS TIME FOR EVERYONE TO PAY THE PRICE EQUALLY FOR THEIR CRIMES.

HOLD ALL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES ACCOUNTABLE WITH MANDATORY PRISON FOR CPS EMPLOYEES FOR CRIMES AGAINST FAMILIES IN MANUFACTURING EVIDENCE, ERASING ANSWERING MACHINES, THROWING CASE FILES INTO THE DUMPSTER, AND IGNORING CALLS, MISSING VISITS, AND MAKING FALSE CALLS.
