MacArthur HS teacher arrested for having improper relationship with student, police say

Jae Casey Steuart, 49, was taken to the Bexar County Jail Thursday evening

SAN ANTONIO – A MacArthur High School teacher was arrested after San Antonio police said she sexually assaulted one of her teenage students.

Jae Casey Steuart, 49, is charged with sexual assault of a child and improper relationship between an educator and a student -- both second-degree felonies. She was taken to the Bexar County Jail Thursday evening.

Her charges stem from Tuesday, Dec. 6, when Steuart began leaving written messages for the student, a 16-year-old, according to SAPD.

On one of those messages was her phone number, and the two began communicating throughout the day and planned to meet up, police said.

Steuart later went to the teen’s apartment, picked him up in her vehicle and drove them to a motel near her home, officials said. The pair then went to a room, where Steuart sexually assaulted the teen, SAPD said.

The student was picked up by a friend at the motel. A day later, the student reported the incident to school officials, who then contacted SAPD.

During questioning, Steuart denied having any sexual contact with the student, according to police.

It’s unknown if there are any other victims, but SAPD is urging anyone else to come forward to SAPD’s Special Victims Unit, or to tell a trusted adult.
