A former Callisburg High School teacher and coach was recently indicted by a Cooke County grand jury on a second-degree felony.

Colt Logan Wooley, 24, was indicted on a charge of improper relationship between an educator and a student Wednesday, May 22, according to Cooke County District Attorney John Warren.

Wooley’s indictment alleges he “intentionally and knowingly” engaged in sexual contact with a girl enrolled at CHS while he was an employee there. He also allegedly communicated by electronic mail or text messages in a sexually explicit manner with the student, the indictment shows.

In addition, it alleges Wooley would send messages to the student in order to arrange to meet the girl for sex.

Wooley was arrested at his Grayson County home near Whitesboro on Friday, April 5, on a charge of improper relationship between an educator and a student, Cooke County Sheriff Terry Gilbert previously told the Register.

The Cooke County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to allegations involving the coach and a 15-year-old girl the same day he was arrested.

Wooley’s bond was set at $40,000. He bailed out Saturday, April 6, according to Cooke County Jail records.

On Thursday, April 11, Callisburg Independent School District Superintendent Don Metzler issued a news release stating that Wooley resigned his position as a teacher and a coach.

According to Callisburg ISD’s website, Wooley taught health. Wooley’s Twitter account listed him as an assistant baseball coach at CHS. His Twitter account appeared to have been deactivated as of Friday, June 14.

Wooley’s arraignment is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, court records show.

If convicted of the second-degree felony, Wooley could face two to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
