A 24-year-old teacher is accused of having sex with an eighth grade student, and that's not the only screwed up part of the whole fiasco.
According to KPRC News, Alexandria Vera is now pregnant with the 14-year-old's child.
Vera also claims the boys' parents knew about their relationship and even approved of it, allowing the teen to sleep over at her apartment on numerous occasions. She added that she would drop him off at the bus stop for school the morning afterwards.
As ABC 13 News reports, Vera says the pair are “in love,” a romance that started over social media after they met in a summer class she taught.
The middle school teacher explains that the then-13-year-old first reached out to her via Instagram, and their relationship grew from there — and people seemed to notice.
One student tells ABC 13:
“He like grabbed her butt, and everybody saw it. And then they were talking about it.”
When Vera got pregnant, she tells investigators the family was “excited” and “very supportive” when they found out.
However, court documents reveal that she became nervous after Child Protective Services visited her school and interviewed the couple about their relationship. She eventually aborted her unborn baby.
Aldine ISD's Stovall Middle School, located near Houston, Texas, has since released the following statement:
Aldine ISD has been made aware that charges have been filed against a former Stovall Middle School teacher involved in inappropriate behavior with a male student. When the allegation was made in April, the teacher was immediately removed from the school and placed on administrative leave. Aldine ISD Police investigated the incident and turned their findings over to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The safety and security of Aldine ISD’s students and staff remains a priority of the school district.
Vera is charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child and there's currently a warrant out for her arrest—but she's nowhere to be found.
