A former private school teacher in Plano is out of jail on bond accused of sexually assaulting one of his students.

Jacob Allred is charged with child grooming, a third-degree felony.

Police say one of his students reached out to her parents claiming Allred made advances toward her at Great Lakes Academy in Plano and sent her explicit messages on a chat app.

Plano police were made aware of the allegations earlier this month.

The 15-year-old victim came forward to her parents, and the family immediately went to the Plano Police Department. She handed over screenshots of their conversations, and they were extremely graphic.
