KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A former teacher at Ellison High School in Killeen was sentenced to probation with some required jail time Tuesday in Bell County district court.

Judge Fancy Jezek, in 420th District Court, sentenced Raymond Daniel Huckabee to six years in prison, but then probated the sentence, requiring Huckabee to serve 90 days in the Bell County Jail on weekends.

Huckabee, who now lives in Georgetown, was found guilty of having an inappropriate relationship between an educator and a student while he was teaching at Ellison High School back in 2014, court documents showed.

Huckabee was arrested in Georgetown in July 2016 but posted a $75,000 bond and was released from custody in the Williamson County Jail, online jail records showed.

Huckabee, 39, was removed from the classroom after the school district investigated the matter following a report from police and he was terminated by the district on June 6, 2014.

At the time of his dismissal he had been with the district less than a year.

During the district’s investigation a box of condoms was found in Huckabee’s classroom desk, an affidavit issued in connection to the case said.

The victim, who was younger than 17-years-old at the time of the encounter, told police she had sex with a teacher in May 2014.
