Escobedo’s jail booking sheet revealed he is a maintenance worker at Abilene ISD. AISD said he was terminated once the charges were learned.
AISD provided the following statement:
“Thursday morning, the Abilene ISD was made aware of the arrest of an individual who was employed in the district’s Maintenance Department. Immediately upon learning of the pending charges, the individual was terminated by the district. At no time was the former employee around students after we learned of the arrest and pending charges. According to the Abilene Police Department, the arrest stems from behavior that did not occur on district property. Because this is now a police matter, we will have no further comment on the situation and all questions regarding this case should be referred to the APD.”Abilene ISD
