LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A former Spur ISD coach has been indicted by a federal grand jury on a charge of enticement of a minor. 

Fulmer was arrested by the Texas Rangers in Lubbock on May 11, 2017 around 11 a.m. on charges of sexual assault of a child, according to Troopers with the Department of Public Safety.

Charles Fulmer, 43, resigned on April 11, 2017 after being accused of misconduct with a student. According to the arrest warrant, Fulmer is accused of having sex with a child younger than 17 on March 15, 2017.

The indictment says Fulmer is accused of using a cell phone to persuade, induce, and entice, and attempt to persuade the juvenile to engage in sexual activity for which Fulmer could be charged with a criminal offense. The indictment also states Fulmer is required to forfeit his cell phone to the authorities.

Spur ISD Acting Superintendent Craig Hamilton released a statement in April 2017 saying the teacher was immediately placed on administrative leave, an investigation was conducted and reports of the alleged misconduct were made to state and local child protective and law enforcement agencies.

A report was also made to the state educator licensing entity at the Texas Education Agency.

Fulmer was employed as the new Head Girls’ basketball coach and High School teacher in 2015, according to The Texas Spur website.

He led the high school girls basketball team to the quarterfinals and was selected as Coach of the Year for District 7-1A this year.

Fulmer was able to post the 10 percent of the $100,000 bond on April 11, 2018 to avoid going to jail.
