A school board leader at a North Texas school has been arrested for alleged sexual indecency with a child.

Andrew Wilborn, 43, the president of the Prosper Independent School District (ISD) Board of Trustees, was reportedly booked for the alleged crime, as reflected by Dallas County jail records.

Wilborn was booked Wednesday afternoon, and his bail has been set at $50,000.

According to the Dallas Police Department (DPD), Wilborn was arrested for an alleged incident of sexual contact with a 16-year-old in April 2022.

At the time, he was serving as executive pastor for Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, which is located in City Councilman Tennell Atkins’ District 8 in South Dallas.

The Prosper ISD school board website states that Wilborn served as executive pastor before beginning his term as school board president in 2021.

“I never imagined I would be bestowed the trust of the community nor the honor of the role of serving as one of the Prosper ISD Board Trustees,” stated Wilborn, per the Proper ISD school board website. “I do not take this opportunity for granted.”

Prosper ISD wrote an email to parents late Wednesday.

“Prosper ISD has some difficult news to share with you. Prosper ISD Board of Trustees President Drew Wilborn was arrested late Wednesday afternoon, January 25, 2023, by the Dallas Police Department and charged with indecency with a child,” the email reads.

“This is a criminal matter, and, to the best of our knowledge, this situation does not involve any Prosper ISD students. It is natural for our community to have questions, and we will provide as much information as we can, when we are able.”

In a statement made to NBC 5, Prosper ISD stressed that the alleged crime did not involve any students at Prosper ISD.

“As this is a criminal matter outside his role in the district and, to the best of our knowledge, this situation does not involve any Prosper ISD students, we are referring all questions to the Dallas Police Department,” the statement read.

While it is unclear where the crime occurred, sexual assault offenses have been on the rise citywide.

According to the City of Dallas Open Data crime analytics dashboard, such offenses year-to-date have increased over the same period in 2022 by 8.3%, indicating the severity of the city’s crime problem.

The Dallas Express reached out to the DPD for additional information regarding the nature of the alleged crime but did not receive a response before press time.

DPD asks that anyone with any information on the case, including any other possible offenses involving the suspect, should contact Detective R. Jones #10542 with the DPD Child Exploitation Unit at 214-671-4331 or email: [email protected].
