SAN ANTONIO – A high school teacher was arrested Thursday after being caught sending explicit messages, photos and videos to a 14-year-old student, according to San Antonio police.
Lloyd Peges, 49, was charged with online harassment of a minor, a second-degree felony.
The accusation stems from June 2022, when the student’s parents found text messages, images and videos on her phone.
Authorities said the messages were part of a conversation that was “sexual in nature,” prompting the schoolgirl’s parents to file a police report.
The SAPD Human Exploitation Unit found further evidence and arrested Peg without incident. He was later taken to the Bexar County Jail.
The name of the school where Peges works has not yet been released.
No other casualties have been reported, but police are urging anyone who may have additional information on the case or who may have been a victim to report it and call the SAPD Human Exploitation Unit at 210-207-2370.
We will be making more updates to this story as they become available.
