A high school tutor is accused of inappropriately touching himself in front of a classroom of students, according to court documents.
Richard Lee Young III, a volunteer tutor at Alief Taylor High School, allegedly exposed himself to students and another tutor during class Feb. 13.
Investigators said the teacher, who was also present at the time, was told by several students and the other tutor that Young lowered his pants and began touching himself. He allegedly continued the lewd acts in the classroom until witnesses told him they could see what he was doing.
Young, 18, was arrested Friday and spent the weekend in the Harris County Jail. Records indicate he posted bond on Monday.
Local 2 went to Young's listed address Tuesday but no one answered the door.
An Alief ISD spokesman said the district is looking into how long Young had been tutoring at the school and about the volunteer vetting process.
District officials did say the school's principal informed parents and employees about the incident and assured them Young will not be returning to the school in any capacity.
According to courts records, a judge has also ordered Young to stay away from all things Alief ISD.
Young's next court date is scheduled for April 8.
