HOBBS, N.M. (KRQE) – A Hobbs substitute teacher was arrested for inappropriate contact with students. According to court documents 23-year-old Roy Tabor admits to having sexual contact with four different teenage girls at the junior high where he subbed. Tabor says in most of the cases he hugged girls and then grabbed their butt’s. But the contact went much further with two girls.

Tabor told police he met one girl at a park and kissed her. He also claims to have met a 15-year-old girl at her home during an open period and engaged in more intense sexual contact.

The school district said Tabor has been a sub in the school district since August and he has since been fired. In a statement school officials say several of the girls reported the incidents Friday and police were immediately called in and Tabor removed from the classroom. He was arrested 2 days later.
