Tornillo teacher arrested, accused of relationship with students


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – A Tornillo High School teacher who was placed on administrative leave earlier this month has been arrested.

Andres Soliz, 32, is charged with two counts of improper relationship between an educator and student. The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office’s Major Crimes unit arrested him on a warrant Tuesday.
