MCKINNEY, TX — A Richardson ISD music teacher is under arrest, accused of breaking into a McKinney home so he could sexually assault a child.

Police say the homeowner actually busted 43-year-old Roger Kessler and held him down until cops showed up.

Officers initially thought this was just a burglary, but while investigating, they determined a sex act had occurred between Kessler and a child who lives at the home.

Kessler has been a music teacher at RISD Academy for 14 years.

The principal posted a letter on the school’s website informing parents of the situation. According to the letter, the victim is not an RISD Academy student.

This is an ongoing investigation. McKinney PD is asking anyone with information about this case to contact  Sgt. Damian Guerrero at 972-632-3937
