Spring ISD official sent nude photos of woman's ex to her job, court documents say

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Spring ISD board member is accused of sending explicit photos of a woman's ex-boyfriend to her job in an attempt to harass her.

Donald Davis has been charged with harassment and unlawful disclosure of intimate visual material.

In court documents obtained by Eyewitness News on Friday, the incident happened in July. The woman told investigators she was the manager at Davis' apartment complex on Ella Boulevard.

She claims Davis emailed her a nude photo of her ex-boyfriend, whom she lived with in the same apartment complex for a short time.

Court documents say Davis used a portal on the company's website to send the email.

Davis also printed out the photo and attached it to a letter placed on her apartment door. The letter also contained photo copies of text messages.

According to investigators, the ex-boyfriend said Davis was "extremely jealous" and "had a fantasy that they were involved in an intimate relationship while they lived together for about six or seven years."

The nature of the relationship between Davis and the victim in the photos was not disclosed.

Meanwhile, Spring ISD released the following statement:

"We were notified [Friday] that our Board of Trustee Donald R. Davis was arrested by the Harris County's Sheriff Department on the state jail felony charge of unlawful distribution or promotion of intimate visual material.

Naturally, we were shocked and disappointed by this news. We were also saddened by it. The allegations against our Board Member stand polar opposite to the district's values. We will keep our community informed of any decisions or actions that are taken as a result of this arrest."


According to the district's website, Davis was elected to the Board of Trustees in November 2015 and re-elected in 2018.

Davis is a retired Spring ISD teacher with more than 15 years of experience. He's also a retired captain of the U.S. Army.

Davis was released from jail after posting a $3,000 bond. He is due back in court on Monday, Dec. 7.
