Claire Louise Torres, former English teacher for the Tyrone Public School district, appeared before District Judge Jon Parsley on Wednesday afternoon at the Texas County Courthouse. Torres attorney asked for a reduction in the bond to $20,000, while the District Attorney asked for the bond to be raised. The judge kept the bond at $100,000, and Torres bonded out by 6:30pm. Torres will next have a preliminary hearing in Texas County District Court. Torres faces charges stemming from an investigation by Texas County Sheriff Investigator Andrea Walters.

This case is still under investigation.
