Fort Bend ISD Principal James Brian Shillingburg Arrested for Soliciting a Prostitute

BREAKING: FORT BEND ISD– Clements High School Principal James Brian Shillingburg was arrested and charged yesterday for soliciting a prostitute.

The 42-year-old was arrested by Fort Bend County deputies late Monday. Fort Bend Independent School District issued a statement this morning acknowledging the arrest.

“Clements principal Brian Shillingburg was arrested on December 11 by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office and charged with Solicitation of Prostitution/Other Payor. “We are committed to ensuring there is no disruption to instruction and a smooth administrative transition,” the statement said.

Shillingburg, who earned a Bachelor of Science in Education at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership at Sam Houston State, has more than twenty years of experience in education.

He has been principal of Clements High School since 2022, and before that was principal of James Bowie Middle School. His other professional experience includes teaching kindergarten, fourth grade, and serving as an elementary instructional coach. He also worked in Spring Branch Independent School District for four years as an assistant principal at Landrum Middle School.

In March of 2021, Shillingburg’s name appeared as a defendant in court case Fisher v. Fort Bend Independent School District et al, which involved a minor. The case was later dismissed.

BREAKING UPDATE: 12/12/2023 at 1:37 p.m.

In March of 2021, Shillingburg’s name appeared as a defendant in court case Fisher v. Fort Bend Independent School District et al, which involved a minor. The case was later dismissed.

While Fisher v. Fort Bend ISD et al was dismissed, sealed and buried, an anonymous informant from the Fort Bend ISD educational system revealed to Katy Christian Magazine concerning details of the case, involving an incident of sexual assault against a minor that occurred while Shillingburg was principal.

“A Houston-area mother says the Fort Bend Independent School District’s failure to follow federally mandated protocols for children with disabilities resulted in her daughter’s sexual assault,” Click 2 Houston reported in an article from November 2023.

This alleged assault was the focus of Fisher v. Fort Bend ISD et al, on which Shillingburg was a defendant. This story suggests potentially criminal negligence.

“The woman has filed a lawsuit against Fort Bend ISD alleging her daughter was sexually assaulted by a fellow student on two separate occasions, even though the girl has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that requires she be supervised any time she leaves the classroom,” Click 2 Houston said.

“Court documents in the lawsuit against Fort Bend ISD say the boy who’s accused of sexually assaulting the woman’s daughter also had an IEP requiring him to be supervised at all times because he has a ‘history of committing acts of violence against other students.’”
