A 23-year-old substitute teacher at Pasadena Independent School District is facing charges after being accused of having sex with a 16-year-old male student in 2018.
Olivia Huerta substituted for a social science teacher at Sam Rayburn High School at some point between January and April of 2018, officials wrote in documents filed in court. During that time, police say she took a 16-year-old student to her parents’ house and had sex with him.
The allegations came to light when police say the teen admitted to a friend that he had sex with a teacher. The friend reported this to school administration, who then called authorities.
Cops showed him several photos and he was able to identify Huerta, KPRC reported.
She was arrested after reportedly admitting to having sex with the teenager when questioned by police.
Huerta also turned over her phone where inappropriate messaging were found with the student, police said.
‘Upon receiving the allegation, the administration at Sam Rayburn High School immediately notified district administration and the Pasadena ISD Police Department,’ school district officials wrote in a statement to KPRC.
‘The accused individual was promptly removed from campus and is no longer employed by Pasadena ISD.’
