UPDATE: Nocona Teacher Indicted

UPDATE: A Nocona Independent School District teacher has been indicted on an improper relationship between educator and student charge.

Matthew Brown was accused of having sexual contact with a student. Brown resigned in October, a day after he was arrested. The Nocona ISD released a statement to Newschannel 6 saying it is cooperating fully in the investigation. 

Newschannel 6 found out the suspect had not been with the Nocona ISD very long. Officials say Brown taught biology and was a boy's coach at Nocona High School since August of 2010. 

One parent we spoke with says Brown was her son's teacher at one point. When she heard the news she was shocked. 

"You never know what's going to happen. I met him and he seemed like a nice man. Would of not expected anything," said Myra Politakis. She also told us she was beyond surprised to hear the news.

Nocona ISD officials said 25-year old Matthew Brown turned in his resignation last Friday. Just a day after he was arrested and charged with Improper Relationship Between an Educator and a Student.

Myra Politakis is now concerned. "Never thought in a small town like this that anything would of happened. I lived in Louisville before and you hear more situations that happen there, but not necessarily for a town like this. I was very shocked and surprised about it," said Politakis.

The Nocona Police Department says the victim is 16 years old and attends the school where Brown was a teacher and coach. Police say Wednesday morning the teen and her parents walked into the police station to report the alleged offense. 

Nocona Police Chief Kent Holcomb comments, "When somebody comes to you with allegations such as that, its a shock to anybody big town or small town. We have to move on it and we did just that."

Police Chief Holcomb tells Newschannel 6 prior to this Brown did not have a criminal past. Chief Holcomb also says he encourages all parents to communicate with their children to always know what's going on.

Nocona Police also say Brown is out of jail. He posted bail Friday and is cooperating with the investigation. They expect the investigation to wrap up later this week. As soon as police are done they will turn everything over to the Montague District Attorneys Office.
