EARLY, Texas — UPDATE: A former Early Independent School District aide who was previously arrested with sexual performance of a child has been arrested again on six additional charges.

According to the Early Police Department, officers arrested Justin Robinson on six warrants:

  • Online solicitation of a minor, a third-degree felony
  • Improper relationship between an educator and a student, a second-degree felony
  • Improper relationship between an educator and a student, a second-degree felony
  • Possession or promotion of lewd visual material depicting a child – state jail felony
  • Invasive visual recording – state jail felony
  • Indecency with a child, a second-degree felony

Since Robinson was arrested Sept. 10, 2022, for sexual performance of a child, EPD officers have continued to interview witnesses and execute search warrants on social media accounts and on electronic devices, some which had to be sent to the Texas Department of Public Safety lab for forensic analysis.

The follow-up investigation resulted in the warrants being issued. Officers have been in constant contact with District Attorney Michael Murry during the investigation and in the development of the search warrants and arrest affidavits.

Robinson was taken to the Brown County Jail and currently has bonds totaling $400,000.

ORIGINAL STORY: An Early Independent School District aide has been arrested and charged with a felony after a 14-year-old student told their parent "a middle school coach" was making inappropriate contact with them on a messenger app.

According to the Early Police Department, on Aug. 24, 2022, the Early ISD notified the EPD the school received a message from the mother of the middle school student. Allegations were made that Justin Robinson, a coach’s aide for Early ISD, exposed himself to the child and enticed the child to do the same.

Early ISD administration said it removed Robinson from school property immediately. EPD began interviewing witnesses and obtaining search warrants for electronic devices to acquire copies of the images and videos.
On Aug. 25, a search warrant was executed on Robinson’s home and officers seized cell phones, computers and other electronic devices.

Additional search warrants were obtained to have a forensic search completed on these devices.

On Sept. 9, 2022, Robinson was arrested at his home without incident for charges of sexual performance of a child, a third-degree felony.

The investigation is continuing with further interviews and electronic search warrants.

The Early PD said it believes there may be more victims and encourages parents to talk with their children and look through their phones for any communication and contact with Robinson.

If anything is found or parents suspect something, call the EPD at 325-646-5322.
