West Texas High School Teacher Admits to Having Sex with Underage Student
Gregory Austin Flores, formerly of Whitharral High School, has pleaded guilty to attempted use of interstate facilities to transport information about a minor.
KAMC News reports that Flores, who was 28 years old at the time, used a cell phone to solicit or entice a 16-year-old girl to engage in a sexual relationship.
Reports indicate that school administrators learned of a relationship between Flores and the girl in August 2019. The victim admitted to it.
The relationship apparently began in December 2017 with text messages, but progressed to more sexual acts. At some point, Flores allegedly asked the girl to send sexually explicit pictures.
If Flores' plea deal is accepted by the court, he will be sentenced at a later date to no more than 5 years in prison.
