A Burnet County school district bus driver and substitute teacher was arrested Thursday evening for inappropriate behavior with a teen, superintendent Keith McBurnett told parents in a letter Friday.
Daniel Dilworth, 22, is charged with attempted indecency with a child, a third-degree felony punishable with up to 10 years in prison.
The arrest is in relation to a June 26 incident, Burnet County Jail records show. McBurnett said Dilworth tried “to initiate inappropriate contact with a teen during off-duty hours.” No other details were available Friday.
“There is no reason to believe this incident is related in any way to his employment with Burnet CISD,” McBurnett said. “The incident took place after hours and did not occur on any District property, at a District event, or in any District vehicles.”
Dilworth, who is no longer employed by district, was hired in September 2016 after passing a Texas Department of Public Safety background check and an employment reference check, McBurnett said. The district has no record of previous incidents involving Dilworth, he added.
McBurnett asked parents and students with additional information on Dilworth to contact the Burnet County sheriff’s office.
