HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A registered sex offender accused of photographing multiple women and even a little girl as they used the restroom at restaurants across Harris County is facing more charges tonight.

Suber was booked in the Harris County Jail on Friday without bond, and is expected to face a judge on Wednesday.

A third lawsuit against a special education teacher, Garland ISD and several of the district's administrators has been filed in federal court, alleging the physical and sexual abuse of teen boys.
Guadalupe Mares says that within months, her son, now 16, was victimized at Hudson. Facts outlined in her Dec. 20 suit draw from those filed in June by Steven and Nora Schutt and in July by Cherish Hooper.
The unnamed son has autism and moderate intellectual disabilities. He was in the special education program at Hudson but, like Hooper's son, did not require assistance in the restroom.
Mares' suit claims that Roell, 36, touched her son and Hooper's son in the restroom under the guise of teaching them "to shake excess urine from their penis after urinating."
"There is very, very strong circumstantial evidence," said Martin Cirkiel, the attorney for Mares and her son. "We have a young man who can speak and called out in class, and everybody heard it, 'If you touch me again, I'm going to call police.' "
Roell faces a single charge out of Sachse of indecency with a child by contact, a second-degree felony. There are no criminal charges in Garland ISD, site of the Pathfinder Achievement Center, where the Schutts say Roell broke their son's arm in a school restroom.
Citing the pending litigation, a Garland ISD spokesman and the outside attorney hired to represent the district and its employee defendants other than Roell declined to comment. Roell's attorney could not be reached for comment on this story.
Cirkiel, who represents plaintiffs in all three suits, said he hopes to combine the cases to allow a single judge to handle scheduling, trial and discovery matters.
Among individual employees named as defendants last week were two listed as "unknown school administrators" in the previous suits.
