Prosecute Teacher Accused of Sleeping with Student

Target: Ken Paxton, Texas Attorney General

Goal: Demand full conviction for teacher accused of sleeping with student.

A Texas high school band teacher has been charged with having an affair with one of his students one year ago. Not only did he reportedly commit statutory rape, but allegedly threatened suicide if the student told anyone about their relationship. Brian Drake has subsequently been removed from his position and will face court time very soon.

This man has allegedly committed a horrific crime in taking advantage of his student, in addition to using the threat of suicide as blackmail. He reportedly told the student and the school district it would be “one hundred percent their fault” if he “blew his brains out,” and allegedly forced his victim to remain silent throughout the duration of their relationship. It is not enough that he was merely caught; he must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Illicit teacher-student relationships are much too common these days, and too often the teachers will get off with a slap on the wrist or only a fraction of the punishment they deserve. Sign this petition to demand Brian Drake face justice for allegedly coercing and manipulating an innocent girl.


Dear Attorney General Paxton,

Texas high school band director Brian Drake allegedly carried on an affair with a student for roughly two years, threatening to kill himself if she ever told anyone. When the school district discovered his alleged crime, he reportedly made the same threat, telling them it would be “one hundred percent their fault” if he died. Drake is currently facing charges, due back in court very soon.

Ensure that this man is punished to the full extent of the law. Not only has he allegedly committed a violation of trust and abuse of his authority, he reportedly manipulated his victim into keeping silent in order to protect himself and his job. He must not get away with this even in the slightest. Please ensure that he faces justice for his actions, if convicted.
