Madison Police arrested Isaac Munoz last Friday and charged him with a school employee having sexual contact with a student under the age of 19, a Class-C felony.

According to the Madison Police Department (MPD), Munoz was a contract employee for the Madison City School System as a counselor at James Clemens High School.

Madison City Schools said in a statement Tuesday that allegations of improper contact first came to light on April 29. MPD was immediately notified, and an investigation was launched into the allegations. In court documents filed, the alleged crime occurred between January 31 and May 1.

Before the allegations, Munoz provided counseling services on a referral basis per an agreement between the school system and the Enrichment Center that employed Munoz.

The school system said that Munoz's assignment was immediately rescinded once the allegations were reported, and he was no longer assigned to provide services at the time of his arrest.

In 2022, Munoz was honored as a "helping hands hero" after Huntsville City School second graders completed a 10-week "super citizen program" in which, according to the Liberty Learning Foundation, he assisted students in learning about crucial lessons in civics, character, financial literacy and social studies to a tech-centric generation.

Munoz is the second school employee in Madison County to be arrested and charged with sexual crimes with a student in the past month and the fifth in Alabama.

Following his arrest, Munoz was booked into the Limestone County Correctional Center, where he was later released on a bond of $2,500. MPD continues to investigate this incident to see if there may be other potential victims and if any other crimes may have occurred.
