ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A former Arlington schoolteacher, accused in February of having an improper relationship with two students, is back in jail.

Brandon Ashley McDaniel, 36, was taken into custody after two more students, who were both minors at the time of the alleged offenses, came forward.

Last month McDaniel was put on administrative leave after two female students told authorities they had a sexual relationship with the teacher. As Arlington police continued their investigation into those cases information concerning the two additional students was discovered.

One young woman told police that she began a sexual relationship with McDaniel while she was a student Sam Houston High. The teen claims their physical relationship began her sophomore year, lasted through high school, and most recently occurred in January of 2012.

Another girl reported that she began having sex with McDaniel when she was 14 years old and that not only had her relationship with the teacher continued after she graduated, but that their most recent sexual encounter was last month.

McDaniel, who resigned from the AISD on March 6, had been with the district since 1999, and was chairman of the English Department at Sam Houston High School. He is currently being held in the Arlington City Jail on $105,000 bail.

Investigators believe there could still be victims who haven’t come forward and encourage anyone with information or similar dealings with McDaniel to contact Arlington police at (817) 459-5352, or Crime Stoppers at (817) 469-TIPS (8477).

    Brandon, what is the hell wrong with you? re-arrest because you can’t stay away from young p—-.

    I feel so sorry for those young girls. A person in a position of authority should never use it to manipulate those that s/he are over. It makes it hard if not impossible for the victims to trust others and have normal relationships. I am praying for all involved in this horrible situation.

    Meh no one should be surprised. I was in his class room for a few years in highschool 00-04. There were rumors back then that he was with a student. He even discussed it in his class room how “untrue” the allegations were since he was on his honeymoon when the “supposed” encounter happened. He made it appears as she, whoever she was, was a misguided youth with a crush. This man has more charisma than any other individual I have met, ever. He captivates those around him with hilarious stories. He was EVERYONE’s favorite teacher, myself included. I’m really not surprised by this given the rumors I’d heard. His students, current students, will likely defend him to the bitter end of things. As I stated, he’s very charismatic. Young people, at least many of them, haven’t learned as much and don’t know how to pin a manipulator yet and think he’s the bees knees.

      Agreed; he was my favorite teacher as well. I had him as a freshman and senior. When he was accused in ’09, my senior year, I had suspicions, but I stayed loyal to him and thought the worst of the girl who made the allegations. He is a very charismatic man, and I see now that he used that charisma to charm the pants off of young girls. They say you covet what you see, and he saw admiring teens girls around him all day. I mean, he could sing and play guitar, he smoked weed, he drank, and made adult jokes. He was positively dreamy in my teenaged mind, so I can see how easy the pickings must have been for him. The 18 year old students were bad enough, but 14? that is vile! I am sick to my stomach thinking about it. I wish I could go to his trial to see him squirm.

    I hope he receives a fair trial everyone posting here assumes he’s guilty this is a tragedy for his wife and kids if any
