Edinburg CISD officials are considering the fate of a high school principal at the center of a sexual harassment investigation.
Police reports now reveal a teacher came forward accusing Ramiro Guerra of making sexual advances at a conference in San Antonio.
The San Antonio Police Department has launched a criminal investgiation.
As we reported last month, the teacher and Guerra were attending a conference.
According to reports, the female teacher accused the Edinburg North High School principal followed her to her hotel room asking her to quote "hangout."
In a police report, the teacher claims he began hugging her and rubbing her back.
On the second night, he allegedly pinned her from behind between himself and the hotel door forcing his way into the room.
San Antonio police told Action 4 News that their investigation is ongoing.
But the school district reportedly wrapped up its own internal investigation into the incident.
Despite the allegations, attorneys say Guerra, who's been with the district for nearly 40 years denies any wrong doing.
He has also filed an appeal.
Earlier this month, the school board voted 4 to 2 to terminate his contract and replaced him.
The Texas Education Egency (TEA) is also involved.
