Muleshoe Teacher Morgan Marricle Accused of Inappropriate Sexual Relationship with 14-Year-Old Student
KAMR reports that police received a report of “an improper relationship, including touching and texting in a sexual manner, between Marricle and a fourteen year old student.”
Although Marricle has not been arrested, charges are expected to be filed before a grand jury in June.
Locals say that rumors of an illicit relationship between Marricle and the child have been circulating around Muleshoe, a town of 5,100 residents located about 68 miles (109 km) northwest of Lubbock, for some time.
“That teacher was a big old flirt. You could tell she was a big flirt,” Muleshoe High School sophomore Manuel Ronquillo told KLBK. “I think it’s been going on for a while, to tell you the truth.”
