A former Ellison High School teacher on Tuesday pleaded guilty to having an improper sexual relationship with a student in 2014, a second-degree felony.

Raymond Daniel Huckabee, a 39-year-old Georgetown resident, was sentenced to six years in prison by Judge Fancy H. Jezek but will have his sentence suspended as he’s put on community supervision for six years as part of his plea agreement.

In order to avoid serving his sentence in full, Huckabee will have to serve 90 days at the Bell County Jail on weekends, starting at 6 p.m. Feb. 10. He’s also barred from consuming any drugs or alcohol.

According to an arrest affidavit, police received a report about an improper relationship between a student and a teacher in Killeen. After the police learned of the relationship, the Killeen Independent School District conducted an investigation. During a search of Huckabee’s desk, a box of condoms was found, according to the affidavit.

The victim said she had sex with Huckabee sometime in May 2014. Police also spoke to someone who said Huckabee contacted her, admitted to having sexual relations with the victim and asked if it was possible to take fingerprints off a cardboard box of condoms.

According to the KISD administration, Huckabee was removed from the classroom May 29, 2014, as soon as the district learned of an alleged incident. His employment with KISD was ended June 6. The Ellison teacher was hired in August 2013 and had been a KISD employee for less than a year.

Before his employment with KISD, Huckabee was a school resource officer with the Pflugerville ISD Police Department. He submitted a letter for resignation July 15, 2013, stating he accepted another position “that will further my growth and development in my career.”
