ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - A former Odessa teacher accused of being in an inappropriate relationship with a student faces a new charge.

William Boone, 51, has been charged with possession or promotion of child pornography, a third-degree felony.

According to an arrest affidavit, an officer with Ector County ISD Police met with DPS Special Agents in May to discuss his investigation into an improper relationship between a teacher and a student.

The officer told the agents that he observed several images of the female student victim that met the definition of child pornography. The photos were found after police executed a search warrant at Boone’s home and seized a phone along with other electronics.

Agents reviewed the evidence on June 2 and 3 and charged Boone with possession of child pornography.

Boone was arrested in August of 2020 following an investigation by ECISD Police. Two students reported to school officials that Boone had been involved in an improper relationship with a student earlier in the year.

Boone began teaching at ECISD in 2000.
