MARRIED DALLAS TEACHERS ARRESTED ON SEX CHARGES
MESQUITE, Texas —A couple that teaches in Dallas public schools has been arrested on sexual assault charges after police received a report of misconduct at the couple’s suburban Dallas home involving “several” minors.
Fifty-year-old Jesse Castillo is charged with two counts of indecency with a child and one of sexual performance by a child. Virginia Castillo, who’s 46, is charged with a count of sexual performance by a child.
Both are held in the Dallas County jail with bonds set at $150,000 bond.
Mesquite police say the youths worked for a business operated by the couple from their home.
They say they’re reviewing “electronic media” to identify additional victims.
The attorney listed in jail records for Jesse Castillo didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
19TH SUSPECT CHARGED IN SEX ASSAULTS OF TEXAS GIRL
CLEVELAND, Texas — Authorities have arrested a 19th suspect in a series of sexual assaults against an 11-year-old girl in the Southeast Texas town of Cleveland.
Officials say 26-year-old Walter Jamal Harrison turned himself in late Wednesday. The Houston Chronicle reports he’s charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Since last month, police have arrested 19 men and boys — ranging from a mid-dle-school student to a 27-year-old man — and accused them of sexually assaulting the girl on at least four occasions from September on.
Officials say the investigation began in December after a friend of the girl told a teacher of seeing a lurid cellphone video of one of the alleged attacks.
Cleveland is a town of about 8,000 residents about 40 miles northeast of Houston.

Judge returns beauty queen’s crown
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A 17-year-old Texas beauty queen allegedly told to “get off the tacos” after gaining weight has had her crown returned by a judge after a jury ruled that she was wrongly stripped of her title.
Domonique Ramirez won her lawsuit against the Miss San Antonio pageant, Luis Vera Jr., her attorney, told The Associated Press
“She won 100 percent,” Vera said.
Judge Barbara Nellermoe then restored Ramirez’s crown, clearing the way for her to compete for Miss Texas and Miss America, according Court Clerk Grace Montalvo. After deliberating 11.5 hours over two days in the weeklong
trial, the Bexar County jury of five men and seven women found that pageant officials, not Ramirez, breached the contract.
“It’s a sad day for us. We think the judge and jury made a huge mistake,” pageant director Linda Woods said. "It’s an injustice for the city of San Antonio, it allows young kids to breach contracts and violate authority without any consequences ... It sends the wrong message.”
Consequently, Woods said she would not personally promote or support Ramirez in her bid for Miss Texas.
“I’m sorry, there’s no way I would represent her as talent. She’s trouble,” Woods said.
The size-2 teenager was fired in January over allegations of weight gain and bad behavior. Pageant officials testified that Ramirez showed up
to a bikini photo shoot overweight and made pictures "unusable."
But pageant officials claimed weight wasn’t the issue. Instead, they said the 5-foot-8,129-pound teenager was unreliable, chronically showing up late for events such as grocery store openings, and violated her contract in ways ranging from not writing thank-you notes to blowing off a physical fitness program and vocal lessons. It all added up to insubordination and breach of contract, they said.
Ramirez denied gaining weight or being late.
After the verdict, pageant attorney Ben Wallis told the San Antonio Express-News that the verdict would cause confusion and that the Miss Texas pageant could refuse to invite Ramirez. He declined
to say if the pageant would appeal, only saying the pageant has “contingency plans.”
Jury foreman Jesse Sanchez told the Express-News that the verdict was "a hard decision” and that jurors found interest in the case “overwhelming."
He declined to say why damages and fees weren’t awarded to Ramirez.
There was no immediate word on what would become of Ashley Dixon. Ramirez’s runner-up was crowned Miss San Antonio in a courtroom last month after a judge refused Ramirez’s efforts to obtain a temporary injunction stopping the pageant from naming a new winner.
Judge Nellermoe suggested that community donors provide college scholarships for both Ramirez and Dixon, who have each had their crowns taken away in this dispute.

COUPLE SENTENCED FOR CONSPIRACY
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A suburban Dallas couple who ripped off a medical foundation to pay for their wedding will spend the next couple of years apart.
Twenty-five-year old Melanie Newman and her 28-year-old husband, Michael Anthony Goodloe Jr., both of Carrollton, were sentenced in New Orleans to federal prison Thursday for their roles in a conspiracy to commit health care fraud.
The couple had pleaded guilty to taking over $220,000 from the Medical Center of Louisiana Foundation.
In her role as a bookkeeper, Newman forged foundation checks to pay for personal items and expenses, including their wedding, student loans and to buy cars.
AG SEEKS MORE FACTS FROM ALAMO CARETAKERS
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The Texas Attorney General’s Office wants more facts from the Daughters of the Republic of Texas about controversies involving the state-owned landmark and how the Alamo’s caretakers run it.
As part of an ongoing investigation, the AG’s office has cited concerns about the leaky roof and inade-
quate funding for the exmission. DRT lawyer Jim Ewbank says the nonprofit organization is answering the AG’s questions and pro-viding requested documents.
Meanwhile, state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte has proposed legislation she says may help the DRT maintain its 106-year-old custodianship of the Alamo.
