A former high school teacher in Willis is facing charges for alleged sexual contact with students.

According to the Willis ISD, after they received an anonymous tip that Jacob Kincaide, who was a girls' assistant basketball coach, had sexual contact with the students, they notified the Montgomery County Constable's Office. Charges were filed against Kincaide on Thursday.

"I want to assure every parent, grandparent and every member of the Willis ISD community that your children will be nurtured and safe when they are in school," said Willis ISD Superintendent Bret Jimerson. "We are both outraged and deeply saddened by these circumstances. That's why the District responded aggressively to investigate this matter, and even since the teacher resigned, we have worked diligently to cooperate with law enforcement authorities during the criminal investigation."

The district tells us Kincaide resigned from his position when he was questioned by district administrators. He was then prohibited from being on district property and access to all district facilities removed.
