SAN ANTONIO -- A former Memorial High School teacher charged with having sex with a 15-year-old student, now is accused of possessing child pornography.

Marcus Revilla, 44, was charged with two additional felonies Saturday, more than a week after he was first arrested.

According to an arrest warrant for Revilla, after speaking with Edgewood ISD police, Revilla texted a fellow teacher and asked him to hold onto a backpack in Revilla's classroom. Instead, the teacher gave the backpack to Memorial's principal.

The warrant states police took possession of the backpack and found a laptop inside that belongs to Revilla.

According to police, the laptop contained nude photos of the teen as well as photos and videos of the teen having sex with Revilla.

No one answered the door Monday when WFAA sister station KENS 5 stopped by Revilla's home.

The teen told police she had sex with Revilla at least 20 times between September 2013 to March 22, less than a week before Revilla was arrested.

The teen told police she is now four-and-a-half months pregnant with Revilla's child.

A second Edgewood ISD employee, police officer Manuel Hernandez, is also accused of having sex with the same female student.

Hernandez, 57, was arrested and fired last week after being accused of having sex with the teen in December 2013.

According to police, Hernandez asked the now 16-year-old girl to sent him erotic photos of herself and would write her hand-written passes when she was late for class.

The victim claims Hernandez pressured her into having sex with him in return for him helping her get out of trouble.

The district declined KENS 5's request to speak with Edgewood ISD Superintendent Jose Cervantes.

The district's board of trustees are scheduled to hold a special meeting Monday night to discuss possible layoffs within the district.

A spokeswoman for the trustees said the board was not planning to address the sex abuse scandal publicly.

The school district issued the following statement: 

“While investigating the recent alleged incident involving a former Memorial High School teacher and a female student, Edgewood Police uncovered evidence that has resulted in an additional criminal charge - possession of child pornography. Edgewood would like to reiterate that the District and its Police Department took immediate action the moment that allegations of misconduct were first brought to our attention. The teacher resigned the same day and was arrested within 48 hours. Edgewood Police are continuing the investigation and the District reaffirms that it does not tolerate conduct that violates employee-student boundaries; individuals who break that public trust will be prosecuted to the fullest extent possible.”
