The Texas Rangers have arrested a juvenile jail counselor accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old Hidalgo County boy.
After a six-month investigation, the Texas Rangers arrested 29-year-old Selena Marie Baxter, who worked at Lake Granbury Youth Services -- a juvenile jail southwest of Fort Worth.
The Texas Department of State Health Services lists Baxter as a licensed professional counselor intern. Baxter worked for a company called Rite of Passage, which provided services at the juvenile jail, according to the criminal complaint against her.

The Anne Frank school is just the first in an ambitious plan to open numerous Inspire Academies, all under the auspices of the non-profit Educational Resource Center, which runs the John H. Wood schools and of which Rockstroh is chief executive officer.
“I want to open 100 of them,” Rockstroh said. “All over. Not just in Texas but all over the country.”
While devising the new school's approach, he considered an array of education practices, including those in universities and in other countries.
The plans call for replacing standard classrooms with informal gathering places such as a tree house, a café and a large, screened porch where students can work with each other or with teachers.
Like other charter districts, John H. Wood has no local tax base and receives no state facilities money, leaving few options for funding capital projects.
The students at John H. Wood's six existing campuses include sex offenders, students with severe emotional and behavioral disorders and those struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. Because of those challenges, the district pulls in thousands of dollars more per student in state and federal revenue than more traditional charters or local school districts.
Incidentally, what can someone REALLY know about this entity? Can't from the State of Texas
