A former New Boston, Texas, Independent School District substitute teacher who worked at the middle school last fall has been indicted by a Bowie County grand jury for alleged misconduct with female students.

Dylan Reed Simpson, 21, was indicted in June for three counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact and two counts of online solicitation of a minor. According to probable cause affidavits, Simpson came to the attention of law enforcement in December when the school’s principal notified New Boston police that a student told the school counselor that Simpson was acting inappropriately.

Other girls came forward as well and reported Simpson was contacting them online. Simpson allegedly sent the girls, ages 12, 13 and 14, photos of his genitals and requested they send him revealing photos of themselves.

Simpson allegedly admitted to sending sexually oriented online messages to at least two girls during an interview in December. Simpson allegedly told one girl he wanted to sneak her out of her parent’s home and have sex with her in his truck.

Simpson allegedly touched a 12-year-old girl’s buttocks and breast while at school. Simpson allegedly messaged that girl on Snapchat that he wanted to take her virginity. Another girl reported that Simpson rubbed himself on her arm while in class.

Simpson is currently free on bond. His case is assigned to 202nd District Judge John Tidwell. He is scheduled to appear in court for arraignment in July. Each of the five charges he faces is punishable by two to 20 years in prison.
