Matthew Christopher Hummingbird, 26 of Kermit, received a second charge for Inappropriate Relationship Between an Educator and Student Friday evening.

Reagan County Sheriff Jeff Garner confirmed Hummingbird, who was arrested on the same charge Thursday, received the second charge after an investigation by Texas Ranger Philip Kemp.

Garner said the second charge, which is also a 2nd Degree Felony, is not related to Hummingbird's time at Reagan County ISD during the 2017-18 school year.

"I do know it was a separate victim," Garner said. "I know the second victim cooperated with the Ranger. I don't know specifics as to how many times the inappropriate relationship occurred."

The Big Lake Wildcat has learned the second arrest warrant was signed by Tom Green County Justice of the Peace Eddie Howard.

DPS Spokesman Sgt. Justin Baker confirmed Friday that the 2nd charge did originate in Tom Green County. He also confirmed it was investigated by the Texas Rangers with the assistance of the San Angelo Police Department.

Hummingbird, a graduate of Lake View High School, taught at Lake View during the 2016-17 school year, a year prior to his one-year stint at Reagan County Middle School.

He identified himself on all social media platforms as a History Teacher and Assistant Basketball Coach for Lake View during that time.

Deputy Nick Hammer said investigators received information about another potential improper relationship and passed that information on to the Texas Ranger.

Hummingbird was initially arrested on Thursday for an inappropriate relationship with a Big Lake student.

He was arrested by Reagan County deputies in Kermit on the charge stemming from his one-year stay at RCISD as a Middle School math teacher and coach.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Hummingbird had sexual intercourse with a Reagan County ISD student two times between January and March of 2018.

"These cases involving children are a top priority for us," Sheriff Jeff Garner said. "When we get information, we will move forward. If it proves to be fact, we will pursue the criminal case."

Garner said his department has a duty to the citizens of Big Lake to do the best job possible.

"Especially in cases dealing with minors and students," Garner said. "The people of Big Lake and Reagan County deserve the very best from us, and that is what we are trying to do."

The document shows the events were told to Reagan County Investigator Jason McGhee during an interview with the victim.

Investigators were able to obtain a full confession from Hummingbird on Thursday to the first Improper Relationship Between and Educator and Student which occurred in Reagan County.

Hummingbird is currently employed by Kermit ISD as a Junior High math teacher and coach.

Improper relationship between educator and student is a Second Degree Felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison and a fine not to exceed $10,000.00.

As with all criminal cases, Hummingbird is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
