Teacher arrested for rape of teen in 2009:

Catholic School Employee Accused of Having Sex With Student:

Yesterday Memphis police arrested 31-year-old Jose Garcia for allegedly having sex (child rape) with a 15-year-old boy that he approached on MySpace.

Garcia allegedly had sex with the student from Bishop Byrne High School after approaching the boy on MySpace in February of 2009. The ‘sex’ allegedly took place in the Junior Hall of the school. It wasn’t reported until 2010 and Garcia was eventually arrested in 2011.

Garcia was suspended and barred from the school at the time of the initial complaint.

He’s kind of ‘pretty’. He’s going to be real popular inside.
