MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

An arrest affidavit is revealing new details involving a Midland I.S.D. teacher and a child.

Santiago "Jimmy" Zepeda, III, is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

According to the affidavit, the incidents took place from Feb. 25, 2009 and Dec. 31, 2012.

The affidavit stated that Zepeda committed the crimes when the victim was under the age of 14 years old.

According to the arrest warrant, the victim stated that during the four years while the families were engaged in bible studies, Zepeda would "every single time he had an opportunity," he would commit a sexual act.

The affidavit also stated that Zepeda told the victim not to tell anyone.

The affidavit added that the reason the victim came forward was, "he heard that Zepeda is a teacher in Midland and was afraid that he would victimize someone else."

Zepeda is currently on administrative leave with Midland I.S.D. and sent out a statement Wednesday stating, "Midland ISD administrators were made aware of allegations against a current MISD employee, Santiago Zepeda. Zepeda has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation into allegations of criminal conduct. The Midland Police Department is leading the investigation."

Midland I.S.D. administrators said that Zepeda began working for Midland ISD for the 2016-2017 school year and was assigned as an assistant band director to Lee Freshman and also did work at Lee High School.
