Former P.E. Teacher Faced Charges of Sex Assault and Indecency

A former physical education teacher at McMillen High School indicted on charges of sex assault and indecency with a child over an alleged affair with a 16-year-old student.

Aaron Russel Reza, 30, of Wylie was indicted Tuesday on two counts of sexual assault of a child, three counts of indecency with a child and four counts of having an improper relationship with a student, court records show.

Reza was initially charged Jan. 5 with inappropriate relationship with a female student and sexual contact, court records show. He was booked into the Collin County Jail and released on $20,000 bail the day of his arrest. He remains out on bond, according to jail records.

McMillen High, in Murphy, is part of the Plano school district.

Reza was hired by Plano ISD in August 2012, after previously working at the Uplift Education charter school in Irving.

At McMillen High, Reza taught health and physical education and coached football and baseball, Plano ISD spokeswoman Lesley Range-Stanton said.

The district’s website also listed him as an assistant baseball coach at Plano East Senior High School.

Reza was placed on administrative leave after he arrested in January, and he no longer works for the district, Range-Stanton said.

According to a probable-cause affidavit, the girl told interviewers that she was sexually assaulted twice at Reza’s Wylie home and once in his white Lexus. She was 16 at the time, the affidavit states.

During the incident in the Lexus, the girl told the investigator that Reza “cornered her in the front passenger seat and started kissing her on the face.” He then sexually assaulted her, according to the police report.
