    Police arrested George A. Flores Jr. Wednesday on three counts of improper photography after they say they found hundreds of inappropriate photos of women on his cell phone.

    It's the second time Flores has been arrested for improper photography.

    Flores was arrested December 15th, outside a TCU area home. TCU police responded to a call about a prowler near the home and when they arrived they found Flores hiding in the bushes. TCU Police searched his cell phone which had grainy photos of a woman changing in her bedroom. Fort Worth Police later took on the case and he was arrested.

    Fort Worth police confiscated Flores' cell phone, obtained a search warrant, then forensically analyzed the phone, only to find hundreds of inappropriate photos of women.

    Among the victims are seven Paschal High School students and one local college student who was a student teacher at the time the photo was taken, according to police.

    Though the women in the pictures were clothed, police described them as inappropriate because they were close-up shots of various body parts and were taken without the females' knowledge.

    "Being that they did obtain a search warrant for his personal computer at home as well as his work computer, it is a possibility that there are other victims," said Sgt. Pedro Criado, public information officer for Fort Worth Police Department.

    Flores' attorney, Harold Johnson, maintained his client's innocence in an email:

    "My client is a beloved teacher by both faculty and students at Paschal High in Fort Worth. He and his family are devastated by these dubious accusations consisting of wholly unsubstantiated evidence."

    Flores was placed on administrative leave after the first arrest. Fort Worth ISD school officials said they would sending a letter to Paschal High School parents about the situation.
