Detectives began an investigation into this allegation over several months and were able to determine that the 55 year old male teacher was having a continuous sexual relationship with a 16 year old female student for approximately 9 months.  Upon learning of this investigation, KISD administrators placed the teacher on administrative leave on February 14, 2014.

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014, this case was reviewed by the Bell County District Attorney’s Office and a complaint was returned charging Samuel Antonio Caines Jr. with Inappropriate Relationship Between Educator and Student (2nd degree Felony) and Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke issued a warrant for his arrest.  Detectives served the warrant against Caines at his residence in Killeen.  He was transported to the Killeen City Jail where he was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on Thursday, June 19, 2014 and set his bond at $100,000.  Caines was released after posting the required bond.

Additional charges are pending after further review by the Bell County District Attorney’s Office.   Caines is no longer employed with the Killeen Independent School District.
