Middle school teacher arrested for sending explicit messages to student, SAPD says

Lloyd Pegues, 49, was taken to the Bexar County Jail on Thursday

SAN ANTONIO – A middle school teacher was arrested Thursday after he was caught sending explicit messages, photos and videos to a 14-year-old student, according to San Antonio police.

Lloyd Pegues, 49, was charged with online solicitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.

The charge stems from June 2022, when the student’s parents found the text messages, images and videos on her phone.

Authorities said the messages were part of a conversation that was “sexual in nature,” prompting the student’s parents to file a police report.

SAPD’s Human Exploitation Unit found further evidence and arrested Pegues without incident. He was later taken to the Bexar County Jail.

San Antonio ISD confirmed late Thursday that Pegues’ is now a former employee. The district issued this statement following his arrest:

“When the allegations were reported to the school and district in June, our Human Resources staff immediately began an investigation. The individual resigned, and appropriate agencies were notified. He is no longer an employee with SAISD. We want our community to know that the safety and security of our students and staff will always be our utmost priority.”

No other victims have been reported, but police are urging anyone who may have more information on the case, or who may have fallen victim, to come forward and call SAPD’s Human Exploitation Unit at 210-207-2370.

We’ll bring more updates to this story as they become available.
