As reported by TALON in August, the New Mexico State Police (NMSP) charged James Dee Coulter, a former Aztec High School philosophy and math teacher, with four counts of fourth degree criminal sexual penetration.

The NMSP reported that one of Coulter's former students reported to officers that she had sex with Coulter on two separate occasions in 2015, when she was 17.

After being taken into custody NMSP reports that the suspect admitted to multiple unlawful sexual encounters with underage AHS students.

The four charges were separated into two cases. According to Deputy District Attorney Dustin Obrien, one case was dismissed on August 30 of 2018 because a person key to the case was unavailable. Obrien said the second case is set to go to trial on January 8th and 9th of 2019. In that case Coulter is charged with two counts of criminal sexual contact with a minor.

If Coulter gets the maximum sentence, he faces 30 years in prison.
