This is crazy! CBS News reports that a middle school teacher in Houston had sex with a 13-year-old student and got pregnant! Alexandria Vera, 24, was arrested in June and charged with continuous sex abuse of a child.
The middle school English teacher had a nine month relationship with an 8th grader. After a while, they didn’t even try to hide their relationship from his close ones. The boy’s family knew about the two, and “supported the relationship and invited her to family gatherings.” They were even “very supportive and excited” when Vera revealed that she was pregnant. Vera ended up aborting the pregnancy after being questioned by a child welfare investigator. At the time she was denying the relationship to outsiders.
Vera plead guilty to a lesser charge of aggravated sex assault of a child, and could face up to 30 years in prison. Her sentencing is in January. She has been fired from the school district.
