A sex scandal has unfolded at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, resulting in the termination of 3 deputies. An elementary school teacher from the Pasadena Independent School District volunteered with the Citizens Police Academy where she did ride-alongs with deputies in Harris County District 3 on the northeast side of the county near Wallisville and McHardy roads. She has since moved to the administrative offices at the Galena Park Independent School District.
Apparently, the school teacher and the deputies misunderstood the term "ride along." The Harris County Sheriff's Office has confirmed deputies Adam Wright, Michael Medina and Robert Johnson were all terminated Monday for improper conduct, specifically, for having consensual sex in their patrol cars with the married teacher.
The teacher’s husband is also a reserve deputy, a volunteer who also rides along with deputies in District three.
Art Hood, president of the Citizens Police Academy, said the woman admitted to the vice president that she had sex with the three deputies. She was immediately removed from the group at that time. The incident first came to light two to three months ago. Between that time and the time the deputies were fired, the sheriff's department has been investigating the allegations.
The department issued the following statement.
"The Harris County Sheriff's Office holds all of its employees to the highest of standards, as should the citizens. Employees are expected to act in a professional and responsible manner at all times. Any employee whose conduct discredits and dishonors the Sheriff's Office and the uniform he/she wears will be disciplined accordingly. Improper conduct of any kind will not be tolerated."
