A grand jury indicted 14 people Tuesday in Levelland for such offenses as drug possession, burglary and forgery.
A former Ropes ISD teacher was indicted for allegedly having an improper relationship with a student.
A grand jury indicted 34-year-old Megan M. Thompson for the offense, a second-degree felony.
The defendant, who had a Quail Road home address,was the subject of an investigation that started in January after Ropesville Police Chief Ashey Ramirez received a tip about a relationship between Thompson and a male high school student who was 17 at the time.
Thompson abruptly quit her job on Jan. 9.
The male student told investigators that he obtained Thompson’s phone number and began sending her text messages. He said that he flirted with her and hugged and kissed her on the cheek in a vehicle on one occasion, according to records.
Investigators examined the student’s cell phone and found ‘sexually oriented’ text messages in the case.
