The Palo Alto Middle School eighth-grade science teacher who was removed from his classroom Oct. 12 and banned from the campus took a polygraph test and passed, his attorney said in a news release Thursday.
The teacher, suspected of committing indecency with a child, was "exculpated" by a polygraph examination, meaning the results proved he did nothing wrong, according to attorney Rick Davis of Bryan.
The news release included a copy of the polygraph report, which was administered by Maria Renshaw-Hubbard, a polygraph examiner licensed in Texas. The test was administered Oct. 24.
The teacher’s resume was included and showed he worked for the Killeen Independent School District as teacher, assistant principal and principal since 2003.
KISD officials were unavailable for comment Thursday afternoon.
