PASADENA, Texas (KTRK) -- More than three weeks after being hit with multiple sexual assault allegations, a Pasadena ISD substitute teacher has been charged.

Joshua Lewis was arrested Tuesday on charges of indecency with a child and improper relationship between an educator and a student.

The parents of two Jessup Elementary School students came forward on Oct. 5, alleging Lewis sexually assaulted their children.

The girls' parents say their students were molested by the substitute teacher during a fourth-grade class earlier this month.

Both parents spoke with Eyewitness News along with their attorneys, and said their children continue to suffer after the assaults.

"She's not sleeping. She's crying, she wakes up crying. She doesn't want to eat, she doesn't want to do much of anything. She's usually a very happy kid," said parent Ashley, who is in the process of moving her daughter to a different school.

The district said parents or students who see or hear anything unusual or that makes them feel uncomfortable should report that information to the district.

Anyone with additional information in this case should call Pasadena ISD police at 713-740-0200.
