A third student has come forward to say he had sex with a former teacher accused of sexually assaulting two other students, an attorney for the Glenn Heights school said Thursday.
Pamela Leone Jones, 35, of Dallas was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with two counts of sexual assault. She remained in Dallas County Jail on Thursday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
Jones had worked since January as an English teacher for Athletes for Change, a residential treatment facility for troubled boys ages 13 to 17. Students at the school are enrolled in DeSoto ISD, but the district says the facility is solely responsible for its employees. The school’s attorney, Geoff Henley, said in a statement the school learned of the third student through an internal investigation.
The school notified Dallas police, but police could not comment Thursday on whether Jones would face additional charges.
Jones resigned from the school Monday, Henley said.
The student told a school coach that he met up with Jones at a nearby Chili’s restaurant after one of his parents signed him out of campus.
They then went to a nearby motel where they had sex, according to Henley. The teenager had previously denied any relationship.
According to Jones’ résumé, released by Athletes for Change, she previously worked two years for Dallas ISD as an English teacher at Carter High School.
