CHILDRESS, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The 100th Judicial District Attorney’s Office reports that a former coach and teacher at Childress Independent School District has pleaded guilty to a second-degree felony offense of improper relationship between educator and student.

The DA’s office said Dante Dwight Hibbert was placed on deferred adjudication community supervision for ten years after pleading guilty to the offense.

According to the DA’s office, Hibbert was arrested by the Texas Rangers on Nov. 17, 2020, and during the investigation, multiple electronic devices were seized during that investigation according to court documents.

In addition to the electronic devices, multiple third-party sites where certain electronic data was stored had to be recovered from additional search warrants and subpoenas by the Texas Rangers said the DA’s Office.
