Fabian Aguirre and Clifton Grasham-Reeves: Austin Therapist and Waco Actor/Drama Teacher Facing Sex Charges

Two Central Texans -- an Austin therapist and a Waco teacher/actor -- are in hot water after their alleged sex crimes have come to light.

In the newer of the two cases, a 30-year-old former University of Texas psychology grad student was charged last week with sexual assault in connection with several encounters with a former patient that allegedly occurred last year.

Austin police say in an arrest affidavit that Fabian Aguirre was treating a woman afflicted with obsessive-compulsive disorder and believed that her problems were sexual in nature. He allegedly assigned her "homework" on how best to achieve orgasms, and then evidently decided she needed a study partner. Namely, himself.

The affidavit states that a guilt-stricken Aguirre broke off the relationship after a couple of months. The allegations came to light after the woman began seeing another therapist who advised her to file a complaint.

Waco's Clifton Grasham-Reeves is in even bigger trouble. The 31-year-old drama teacher/actor is headed to trial today after he allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old girl he met while the two were producing a play at Waco's Civic Theatre.

Prosecutors claim that Grasham-Reeves knew full well the girl's age but had sex with her anyway, which is reprehensible and reckless behavior for anyone, but especially so for someone who was once an employee of Child Protective Services and the owner of a master's degree from Baylor's George W. Truett Seminary.

According to KXXV, on February 5, Grasham-Reeves texted the girl that his wife was out of town and asking her to sneak out of her house so he could pick her up. She did, and they allegedly had a sexual encounter after watching a movie at his house. The two then met several more times before the girl ended the relationship. The affidavit also alleges that Grasham-Reeves plied the girl with booze.

Grasham-Reeves faces a single charge of indecency with a child by contact and five counts of aggravated sexual assault. Opening arguments were slated to begin earlier today.

Grasham-Reeves formerly taught English at Harmony Science Academy, a Waco charter school.

Judging by the dates of the alleged incidents and the Waco Civic Theatre's production schedule, apparently, the play that Grasham-Reeves and the girl were working on was Love, Sex, and the IRS. Grasham-Reeves had one of the lead roles. And now he's at the very center of the kind of productions nobody wants to star in.

I knew Mr. GR, he was my English and SAT teacher. He was great. Even though hard times come I will be praying. There is nothing solid in this world to hold on to. only God in heaven. He has the power to forgive and bring eternal life to anyone. I pray for both sides of the story, for Mr. GR that he may find God through times of trouble and for his wife and kid, that they may also find comfort in God. Also for the other Side of the story the girl and her family, I pray that they find comfort and calmness through God. After all, we have a man come and be crucified on a cross for all our sins, Jesus Christ. The son of God. The ultimate forgiver, best healer, and most of all He gave us love. So lets join together and pray for everyone hurt through these times of struggle, that we may all find comfort in the most high, our Father in heaven. 

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life".        (John 3:16) 

God bless you all and may God bring comfort and love into each and everyone's life. Just all on His name. 


I remember when this story first broke. The Turkish staff members flooded the comments board in defence of this human piece of garbage. They pretended to be parents and students. This is common with members of the Gulen Cult. (google Gulen Charter Schools and Tucson Weekly Hidden Agenda)   This kind of behavior is accepted in Turkey but not here in American and the staff members hard time understanding this. Watch this video and you can see why they think it is ok to protect these behaviors and even defend against it.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

so you have to ask yourself after investigating these further. Is your child really safe? After all the Gulenists do proudly take credit for arrest of journalists in there country. With that being said it is every journalists and editors duty to do an investigative reprt on these schools. World wide free speech is a right and not an option. I encourage every one to write to all media outlets demanding a story. TV, radio news papers and tabloids when ever possible.


You are mixing utterly unsubstantiated speculation with outright lies, "Mr. Bill" . . . I challenge you to produce a single link to this alleged "flood" of defensive comments, let alone show any evidence whatever that they were written by Turks. The events that led to this trial were terrible, but have no connection with Harmony Science Academy. All of the "defensive" comments I saw merely highlighted that fact.

What *you* have to ask YOURself is why you are so determined to attack these excellent schools that you are willing to commit libel.
