Ex-Vegas school teacher returned in custody in 2012 sex case

May 13, 2019

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 49-year-old former high school teacher has arrived in custody in Las Vegas from Texas to face multiple felony charges accusing him of sexual conduct with a student.

Records show that Alexander Hunt arrived Sunday and remained jailed Monday at the Clark County jail on eight counts of a school employee engaging in sex with a student.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the former Rancho High School ROTC teacher is due to face a judge on Tuesday.

Hunt left Nevada while police were investigating and before a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was arrested April 25 in Corsicana, Texas.

Police say text messages between the student and Hunt recount sexual encounters.

The Clark County School District says Hunt worked in Las Vegas from February to September 2012.
