HUTTO, Texas (KXAN) — A Hutto High School coach who is accused of having sex with one of his students in his classroom is apparently still in contact with the victim, according to a newly filed affidavit.

In early June, Jake Fenske, 26, admitted to police that he was involved in a relationship with a 16-year-old student after her father found out about their relationship. The girl’s father said the two were communicating via text message and Snapchat.

In an initial interview with police, the student said her relationship with Fenske ended as of late March, but new court documents indicate the victim met up with Fenske numerous times between March and May. In a May 27 interview with police, Fenske told police he loved the victim and admitted to dating and having a sexual relationship with the student, including in Fenske’s classroom at Hutto High School.

On June 28, the victim and her parents contacted police after a note, which appeared to be from Fenske, was found on the victim’s car. The note read: “5/2/1/6/1/4/3 Nothing has changed.” According to the affidavit, the victim said she knew the note was from Fenske because “5/2/1/6” is the date they made their relationship official and 1/4/3 means “I love you.”

Fenske, who had been out on bond since June 3, was booked back into the Williamson County Jail on Monday and charged with sexual assault of a child. His initial charge of improper relationship between an educator and student is still active.

Hutto ISD said they accepted Fenske’s resignation instead of firing him.
