Lucinda Caldwell Sentenced for Sexually Assaulting 12-year-old Boy




Lucinda Rodriguez Caldwell, 41-year-old former teacher from San Antonio, Texas, who was arrested back August 2010 for an alleged sexual relationship with a 12-year-old boy, has been sentenced to ten years in prison for indecency with a child by exposure.

According to prosecutors, Caldwell had an inappropriate relationship with a 12-year-old boy in 2010 while she  was a fifth grade teacher at Cable Elementary in Northside I.S.D. where the boy was a student. Female teacher's repeated sexual encounters with minor bot came to light following a high-speed chase in which she let the boy drive her SUV. At about 3 a.m. one morning in July 2010, the father had recognized the teacher's Ford Explorer outside his house after realizing that his son wasn't home. When the father approached the car the SUV sped off and the father pursued in his own car for about 30 miles before both vehicles were pulled over in Hondo. Later the the boy's father took him to police to report the sexual assaults which lead to Caldwell's arrest. The boy then told police that Mrs Caldwell took him to a motel where she forced him to have sexual contact with her. Police confirmed that she checked into a motel at 1:15 a.m.

Both sides also agreed to a 10-year sentence. Caldwell reached a plea agreement in October in which she agreed to plead no contest to indecency with child by exposure — a third-degree felony — instead of aggravated sexual assault of a child, which could have resulted in a sentence of up to life. The family was worried about putting the young boy through the emotional ordeal of a trial

After her arrest over two years ago, Caldwell and her two children have moved to Eagle Pass.

Under a plea deal, Caldwell had to give up her teaching license, register as a sex offender and have no contact with the victim. The judge retained jurisdiction on the case, meaning she could give Caldwell shock probation after six months in prison.
