Former Skyview High School teacher appears in court on suspected sex crime

CALDWELL – The former Skyview High School teacher who was arrested after accusations of having sexual contact with a student appeared in court Wednesday and waived his preliminary hearing.

Tomas Michael Fisher, 28, was a Spanish teacher at the school before he resigned July 17.

Fisher’s case was moved to district court and he is set for an arraignment and change of plea at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 25.

He is charged with sexual battery due to lewd and lascivious actions with a child 16 to 17 years old. He was arrested Sept. 1 and remains in custody at Canyon County Jail.

According to court documents, the student told authorities that Fisher had consensual sexual contact with her two to three times a week for more than a month. The girl said she would meet with Fisher at his home, his mother’s house or other Nampa locations.

He taught at the high school from 2012 until the 2014-2015 school year. During fall 2014, Fisher coached girl’s varsity soccer. He also worked security for Skyview High School’s night school.
