La Marque Independent School District
News Release
Wednesday, October 05, 2011

La Marque ISD policy requires all employees to inform the district of any criminal allegations that may be file against them.

Cedric Mason, La Marque High School head basketball coach, informed the district through legal counsel about his cooperation with the Harris County District Attorney's office, based on two allegations of sexual assault with a minor.  The allegations against Mason occurred during the summer and did not involve any LMISD students.

The administration will conduct a thorough investigation of the alleged incident.  Mason is cooperating fully with the district.  In a situation such as this, the district disciplines employees based on the employee code of conduct and the severity of the incident.  Currently, the district has placed Mason on administrative leave during the investigation and pending the outcome of the aforementioned allegations.

Throughout his tenure in the district, Mason has conducted himself in a professional manner and has been a model employee.  The district has never received any reports or incidents of any impropriety against him.  Mason is cooperating fully with both the school district and the Harris County DA's office and expects to be exonerated of all allegations.
