COLES CO., Ill. - The troubled school districts in Coles County unfortunately had something added to their woes late last week when a substitute teacher was arrested by U.S. Marshals on a Texas fugitive warrant.

Authorities at the Charleston School District in Coles last Friday (February 9) said that the U.S. Marshals Service had contacted them Thursday, advising that an "at-will substitute teacher" (meaning someone who's not a contracted employee of the school, but instead provides his services on an independent basis) was a "wanted fugitive from justice" out of Texas.

Authorities in Montgomery County, Texas (where Houston is located) had issued a felony warrant for Adrian Rivas, 39, back on January 19 following a charge of Indecency with a Child in that county.

There were no details issued about the allegations, such as when/where it allegedly happened, or what the age of the child was.

However, Rivas had passed a criminal background check for employment with the school district in Charleston, where he began working as a substitute back in mid-October of 2017.

The school officials advised local media that there had been no complaints regarding Rivas, and that the arrest took place at Rivas' workplace for the day, Jefferson Elementary where no students could view it.

He was booked at the Coles County Jail to be held for extradition to Texas.
