Police in Houston, Texas are searching for a middle school teacher charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child after she says she got pregnant by the 13-year-old student with the family’s blessing.
24-year-old Alexandria Vera is alleged to have admitted to having a sexual relationship with the boy beginning last September. They’d begun flirting during a summer school class.
She told prosecutors that she’d given him her number on Instagram after he didn’t show up for class, and it developed from there.
The young boy asked her if they could hang out and she agreed to it. Then they started going for drives in her car and kissing, before evolving into having sex nearly every day.
Their first sexual liaison occurred after she went to drop him off, but his parents weren’t home. So they went back to her house.
Shockingly, the forbidden couple didn’t even try to hide their relationship…even at school.
One student told a news station, “[He] like grabbed her butt and everybody saw it. And then they were talking about it.” Ms. Vera, an English teacher with one child of her own, told cops that she and the boy are in love and that he’d introduced her to his family as his girlfriend.
She also says that they’re accepting of the relationship and even include her in family gatherings.
She went on to say that his parents allowed him to spend the night at her house. She’d drop him off at home in the morning to catch the bus to school.
But when January came, Vera realized she was pregnant with the teen’s child. She told authorities that his family “were very supportive and excited about the baby”.
She decided to have an abortion, though, after getting nervous about their relationship when Child Protective Services showed up at the school in February unexpectedly to question her and the boy about their relationship.
She denied their relationship at that time, according to the District Attorney’s office.
She had her phone analyzed forensically, and it actually appeared that several messages between the student and teacher were consistent with what she’d been saying.
She’s now facing charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child, but authorities haven’t been able to find her to serve the warrant.
