EARLY, TX – A middle school coach in Early was arrested last month for attempting to have inappropriate relations with a male student.
According to the Early Police Department, on Aug. 24, 2022, the Early ISD notified the Early Police Department that the school received a message from the mother of a 14-year-old middle school student regarding information that a Middle School coach was making inappropriate contact with her child through a messenger app.
Allegations were made that Justin Robinson, a coach’s aid for Early ISD, exposed his genitals and enticed the child to expose himself. Upon learning of the allegations, Early ISD Administration removed Robinson from school property immediately.
The Early Police Department began interviewing witnesses and obtaining search warrants for electronic devices to acquire copies of the images and videos. On August 25th, 2022, the Early Police Department executed a search warrant on Robinson’s home and seized cell phones, computers, and other electronic devices.
Additional search warrants were obtained to have a forensic search completed on these devices. On September 9, 2022, Robinson was arrested at his home without incident for charges of Sexual Performance of a Child, 3rd felony.
The investigation is continuing with further interviews and electronic search warrants. Officials believe that there may be more victims and encourage parents to talk with their kids and look through their phones for any communication and contact with Robinson.
If anything is found or they suspect something they are instructed to call the Early Police Department.
