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).
