The Lubbock County grand jury indicts a former Coronado High School art teacher for having an inappropriate relationship with a student.

A federal grand jury has already true-billed 40-year-old Scott Hall for enticement and attempted enticement of a minor.

Hall is accused of having a sexual relationship with a student, using e-mails, texts, and other messages to do so.

An arrest warrant shows Hall confirmed the e-mail messages and said it's all his fault to investigators and he knows he can't have a relationship with that student again.

Hall resigned from the school district on October 5.

The federal charges carry a potential sentence of life in prison.


A federal grand jury indicted Scott Hall, 40, with enticement and attempted enticement of a minor. 

Hall, an art teacher at Coronado High School, was accused of having a sexual relationship with a student who is a minor, a state felony, and using e-mails, texts and other messages - the federal crime - according to the arrest warrant.

The warrant shows Scott confirmed the e-mail exchanges and that "all of this is his fault" and that he knows he cannot have a relationship with the student again.

According to a statement from Lubbock ISD, the district was made aware of the investigation by Lubbock Police prior to Hall's arrest. The district placed Hall on administrative leave.
