BELL COUNTY, Texas — A Georgetown ISD teacher was arrested in Temple and is being accused of sexually assaulting a girl.
The Temple Police Department said Cory Bounds, 35, was arrested early Sept. 25 after officers responded to call reporting the incident in the 1300 block of Honey Hill Drive in Temple. The victim was an 11-year-old girl, according to police.
Bounds was taken to the Bell County Jail and charged with indecency with a child. He is being held on a $100,000 bond.
Georgetown ISD officials confirmed that Bounds was a teacher at Wagner Middle School and had only been employed with the district "for a few weeks." Bounds is now on administrative leave pending an investigation in Bell County, the district said.
The district clarified that the reported incident did not occur in Georgetown and did not involve a GISD student.
