Former HISD employee charged

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has accepted criminal charges against a former HISD employee following an HISD Police investigation into reports that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with a student while working at Hartman Middle School.

Mauricio Mendoza was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexual assault of a child. He is no longer employed with the district.

The allegations were first reported to school officials in December at which time he was removed from the campus and an internal investigation began. The administration also notified HISD Police and Children’s Protective Services (CPS) of the allegation. Police conducted a lengthy and thorough investigation, which they concluded this month. Police presented findings from their investigation to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, which accepted criminal charges.
