A former San Antonio teacher and coach will make an appearance in district court on Tuesday, April 23 in connection with an arrest that occurred in Jim Wells County in September 2017.

The former educator was arrested after investigators were notified that Daniel Marcus Valdez had allegedly been in contact with a minor through social media and drove from San Antonio to Alice to have sex with the minor.

According to investigators, in 2017, Valdez befriended the minor who reported the incident to her parents and then to authorities when he sent her explicit photographs and asked for sex.

Valdez was arrested at a vacant apartment in Alice where he was expecting to meet the minor. Instead he met investigators who hauled him off to the Jim Wells County jail.

He will be in court Tuesday morning for a status hearing.
