An English teacher in Texas is facing up to 30 years in prison on charges of aggravated sexual assault after becoming impregnated by her 13-year-old student.
24-year-old Alexandria Vera and her student had an ongoing relationship over a period of nine months where they had sex onan almost daily basis which she confessed to police.
She was teaching eighth grade English and the two met at summer school in 2015 before exchanging numbers. She would pick him up from his home and they would drive around which is where they first kissed. The following day she went back to his home, while his parents were out, and that’s when they had sex for the first time.
In January of 2016, Alexandria became pregnant – according to court documents, the teen’s parents were supportive and excited to hear about the two having a baby but she had an abortion when Texas Child Protective Services showed up at the school where she worked questioning her about the relationship.
At first, Alexandria denied having any type of relationship with the student but the police found evidence of the relationship on her phone.
