A former school district employee was arrested earlier this month on sexual assault of a child charges, police said Thursday.
Homero Martinez, 50, of La Marque, is accused of sexual assaulting a relative whose age La Marque police have not disclosed. Police arrested Martinez on Feb. 13 after an investigation running almost a month, authorities said.
Martinez had been a maintenance department employee at Texas City Independent School District since August. There was no evidence of any sexual assault crimes committed while on the job, police said.
The school district fired Martinez after the charges were filed, police said.
Martinez was being held on a $50,000 bond in the Galveston County jail.
