On 03-07-23, at approximately 1:15pm, an arrest warrant was served on 41-year old Bryant Shephard of New Braunfels, charging him with Improper Relationship Between an Educator and Student (TPC 21.12), a 2nd degree felony.
That charge stems from an investigation conducted by the New Braunfels Police Department Criminal Investigations Division after Shephard, while serving as a teacher at New Braunfels High School, was observed having inappropriate contact with a female student while on campus. NBISD officials notified NBPD of the incident on Thursday (03-02-23) and detectives immediately began their investigation, which led to the arrest warrant that was served by members of the US Marshal’s Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.
Following his arrest, Shephard, who was located at an address in San Antonio, was transported to the Bexar County Jail without further incident and bond was set at $250,000. As of this release he remains in custody and transfer to the Comal County Jail is pending. The investigation into this case is ongoing, and Shephard potentially faces additional charges. Anyone who believes they are, or someone they know may be, a potential victim of this suspect is encouraged to call New Braunfels Police at 830-221-4100.
