CORSICANA, Texas (KWTX) An ex-Corsicana elementary school teacher accused of groping students in the classroom remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of $3 million bond, a day after he was released on a reduced bond and then arrested for a third time for failing to meet conditions of the bond.
Ramon Santuario-Mendoza, 48, was in the Navarro County Jail Wednesday after he was re-arrested by Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner and other deputies Tuesday night.
Mendoza was released from jail Tuesday morning after State District Judge James. E. Lagomarsino reduced his bond during a hearing Monday.
Mendoza, 48, who’s charged with multiple counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact, had been held since late April on bonds totaling $676,000, but was released Tuesday after posting a $276,000 bond.
As a condition of his release, Mendoza was required to surrender his passport, wear an ankle monitor, remain in Navarro County, report to the county’s probation office weekly, stay away from places where children gather and avoid social media, Navarro County District Attorney Will Dixon said said.
