AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — A former Amarillo ISD teacher is now indicted on nine counts of sex crimes after a former student allegedly confided in two teachers earlier this year about the sexual assault.
In court documents, David Keith Villyard is accused of six counts of indecency with child sexual contact and three counts of sexual assault of a child.
As we first reported, court documents report the victim confided in two Palo Duro High School teachers in March that Villyard assaulted her during the 2015-2016 school year at Travis Middle School.
Both teachers provided affidavits about the students comments.
Amarillo ISD released a statement in mid-July, saying:
This person has not worked for Amarillo ISD since his resignation in 2017. We were deeply concerned when we first learned of the allegations and immediately contacted authorities. We have cooperated with law enforcement throughout the investigation and will continue to do so as needed.AMARILLO ISD
