IDEA Public Schools Educator Arrested for Alleged Inappropriate Relationship with Student in Socorro, Texas

According to the ABC7 article, in Socorro, Texas, an educator employed at an IDEA Public Schools facility, William Patterson, was apprehended by officers from the Socorro Police Department following allegations of an inappropriate relationship with a minor. The charges levied against Patterson pertain to an improper relationship between an educator and a student. The department’s investigation was prompted by a tip received on May 31, 2023, which indicated the existence of a “dating relationship” between Patterson and an underage female student. According to law enforcement, this alleged relationship escalated to a sexual encounter.

On September 5, 2023, William Patterson voluntarily surrendered to the authorities, subsequently being incarcerated in the El Paso County Jail on a bond amounting to $100,000.
