Molesting Teacher Pleads Guilty, Gets Probation

A Houston judge has sentenced a former high school teacher to probation and has ordered him to register as a sex offender after the teacher pleaded guilty to two counts of improper relations with a student and another charge of indecency with a student.

Harris County prosecutors say they're disappointed and victims devastated after 57-year-old Ysidoro Rosales-Motola pleaded guilty Thursday before his trial was to begin.

A total of nine male students had told of being molested during tutoring sessions.

Prosecutors had urged prison time for the Spanish teacher, who was arrested in 2013. But State District Judge Kristin Guiney gave him deferred adjudication, meaning he won't have a felony conviction on his record if he completes the terms of his 10 years on probation.

He also must surrender his teaching certificate.
