Ex-teacher impregnated by 13-year-old student sentenced to 10 years

Ex-teacher impregnated by 13-year-old student sentenced to 10 years

Judge Michael McSpadden said Alexandria Vera's sentencing should serve as a warning to others who are thinking of doing the same thing. He went on to say the 10-year sentence is "a fair warning to teachers".

'We want out educators to teach our students, we want them to keep their hands off the students'.

Vera drove the boy around in her vehicle and they kissed, and the next day she went to his home when his parents were out and they had sex for the first time, she told police. According to court documents obtained by the Houston Chronicle, Vera said she and the boy were in love and began having sex in September 2015. However, she reportedly chose to abort the baby when authorities began to ask questions, according to court documents.

The Houston Chronicle also reports prosecutors said the woman let two eighth graders have sex at her home at one point.

Vera told police that she first met the student during a summer school session.

It kicked off when JT asked if the could hang out and she picked him up and kissed in her auto, she told police.

"She's someone who has a big heart", Lawson said.

The Washington Post reported Vera admitted to having sex with the boy "on nearly a daily basis", after their relationship began in 2015.

"If I was Alex, I'd be counting my blessings", she said.

Alexandria Vera, 24, is accused of having a sexual relationship with a middle school student. She told an investigator that she would drop him off at home in the morning so he could catch the bus to Stovall Middle School, prosecutors said.

Media reports the case was complicated, due to the fact the family knew of the student-teacher relationship.

The victim's mother was in court on Friday to show Vera support, as were other students and their parents. She said that they were even supportive of her keeping their baby, but after being contacted by authorities, Vera opted to have an abortion.
