A former softball coach and teacher who recently resigned from Lake Dallas
High School was arrested and accused of having an improper relationship
with a student.
On Monday afternoon, Corinth police arrested D. Walker, 59, and charged
him with improper relationship between an educator and a student, a felony
of the second degree.
The arrest was made after a student at Lake Dallas High School, where Walker
previously worked as a softball coach and teacher, accused him of misconduct,
according to Corinth police.
Walker was arrested by the Corinth police at the Lake Dallas ISD headquarters
on the first day of school, according to Lt. J. Gregg of the Corinth Police
Department. Gregg said that Walker wasn’t aware that he was going
to be arrested when he arrived at the building.
One mother described the coach as her daughter’s “mentor.”
We’re crazy about him and he was a great coach, said C. Christian,
a mother of a Lake Dallas High School softball player. She said that they’re
shocked, her daughter is shocked, and all of the kids are shocked.
To others, this man was more than a mugshot. Walker was the head softball
coach. He resigned his teaching position earlier this month after the
first accusation surfaced. He’s accused of inappropriate communications
and/or conduct with a student at the school.
He posted $5,000 bail and was released. The police are concerned that there
could be other potential victims.
§ 21.2, improper relationship between educator and student, it is unlawful for
an employee of a public or private school to engage in sexual contact,
sexual intercourse, deviate sexual intercourse, or sexually explicit communication
(including emails and text messages) with a student.
