The following release pertains to the arrest of a Teacher's Aide at Village Tech Schools. We want you to know that we remain fully committed to working with our education partners to help keep all of our students safe. On Saturday night, October 14th, Cedar Hill officers were notified by an official with Village Tech Schools (a public charter school located in Cedar Hill) of a possible improper relationship between a teacher’s aide and a student. Additional details were provided by the school official on Sunday evening, October 15th. On Monday morning, October 16th, detectives met with school officials and interviewed the teacher’s aide. Information which substantiated the relationship between the aide and student was obtained during the interview. Steps were taken immediately to contact the involved student and attempt to locate others (students and other staff) who may have been inappropriately contacted by the aide. During the investigation, detectives discovered initial contact with the student occurred via sexually explicit text messages beginning in March 2016 and continued until June 2017. The messages described sexual acts that the aide wanted to perform on the student who was 16 years old when the text messages began. At this time, there is no indication that physical contact occurred between the teacher’s aide and the student. After consulting with the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office, an arrest warrant was obtained for the charge of Improper Relationship with a Student (Texas Penal Code 21.12), a second degree felony. On the afternoon of October 19th, detectives arrested Cody Hunter McMillen 23, at his home in Duncanville without incident and transported him to the DeSoto City Jail.
