Former teacher sentenced to 50 months for relationship with student

LUBBOCK, Texas -

A former Coronado High School art teacher was sentenced Friday to 50 months in prison for having an illicit relationship with a student. Scott Hall must also pay $20,000 restitution and will be under supervised release for 15 years after he gets out of prison.

Police arrested Hall in October 2018. The arrest warrant showed he sent e-mails, texts and other messages to a 16-year-old student. Investigators said then he proceeded to have sexual contact with the student at her home in August 2018. 

Police determined the relationship started when the victim confided in Hall about a difficult home situation. An investigation began after the mother reported the relationship. She shared with investigators messages she received from Hall, after she asked him to never contact her daughter again.

Hall, according to the warrant, responded "it was misguided affection...I will do anything you ask to keep this from being a legal or professional situation".

The mother also showed investigators an exchange of e-mails between Hall and her daughter, according to the warrant. Hall reportedly confirmed the e-mails, saying all of this was his fault and he knew he could not have a relationship with the student again.

According to our report in October 2018, Lubbock ISD administrators said as soon as they were made aware of the investigation by police, Hall was suspended.

As part of the sentencing, he is considered a sex offender and must register after he serves his prison term.

Hall must report to the Seagoville prison in North Texas on December 3.
