Teacher arrested for alleged improper relationship with Dallas student

A former Dallas high school teacher was in jail Wednesday accused of having a relationship with a student last year, Dallas police said.

Dallas police arrested Michael F. D'Spain, 36, of Irving, Tuesday afternoon at Farine Elementary School in Irving where he was a teacher. He taught music at the Irving elementary school, according to the school's website on Wednesday.

D'Spain was in jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

He faces a charge of improper relationship between an educator and student, a second-degree felony.

Dallas police say the charge stems from a relationship D'Spain allegedly had with a student last year when he was a teacher at Booker T. Washington High School in Dallas.

The improper relationship began in February at the school and continued through May, according to a Dallas police news release.

The student made an outcry to family members who alerted officials with Child Protective Services. CPS officials later contacted Dallas police.

No other investigations are being conducted of D'Spain, Dallas police said.

Dallas police did not release any other details.
