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.’

A Kentucky teacher has been charged with raping her 15-year-old student.

Twenty-three-year-old Kendall Burk was a biology teacher at Grant County High School. The sheriff says she began a relationship with one of her 15-year-old male students at the end of last school year and it turned sexual over the summer.

Burk graduated from the University of Kentucky just a couple of years ago. On Wednesday, she was booked into the Grant County Jail on four counts of rape and four counts of sodomy, which, by Kentucky statute, can mean oral sex. The school district said this all happened very quickly. A student Wednesday told a teacher; the teacher told the administration. Following a quick investigation, the administration told the sheriff’s office.

“Our deputies, at that point, once they were alerted, interviewed some other students who had made the allegations and worked backwards, interviewing the victim as well as the teacher,” said Grant County Sheriff Brian Mains.

A newlywed Florida private school teacher has been arrested after police claim she had sex with a 15-year-old student on numerous occasions and sent him sexually explicit pictures of herself over Instagram.

Bradenton police said they were made aware of the claims against Kassandra Moore, 31, back in April when they were contacted by the Broach School, where she worked as a teacher.

Authorities were provided with a copy of a conversation thread shared between Moore and the alleged teen victim over Instagram, prompting an investigation.

The interaction initially started with questions about a homework assignment but soon messages of a ‘flirtatious manner’ were exchanged back-and-forth, an affidavit shows.

‘I wanted to just grab you and kiss you, but I didn’t want to make the first move and you reject me,’ one message sent by Moore reportedly reads.

Police also spoke to the recipient of the messages, who is said to have shown them several screenshots of ‘lewd selfie-style’ pictures that Moore had sent to him, showing her in lingerie with her ‘body parts exposed and posed in a sexual manner’.

The teenage boy also confessed to detectives the pair had arranged to meet in several locations – including Moore’s car, at school after hours, and at the G.T. Bray Park – where they engaged in sexual acts.

Their apparent relationship ended when one of the student’s friends informed the principal of the inappropriate on-goings.

However, when approached by detectives, Moore allegedly attempted to coerce a colleague into providing a false alibi for her, as well as messaging a former student to ask how to remotely delete messages and images from another person’s phone.

At first her colleague is said to have considered lying to police to protect Moore, but later instead agreed to assist the investigation when they learned of t

The bookkeeper told deputies Johnson was in charge of a candy fundraiser for which $2,080 worth of candy was bought, but the school was reimbursed $1,740.

In another fundraiser, school officials said Johnson collected money for shirts, but didn’t deliver shirts to 10 students. School officials said they spoke to eight of the 10 students who all said they paid Johnson for the shirts, but didn’t get them.

Between March and May, Johnson is accused of taking between $100 and $400 from each of 10 students, students told deputies.

Multiple students told deputies Johnson collected money for a competition field trip and then told students either the trip was canceled when it wasn’t, or told them they weren’t ready for the competition and shouldn’t go.

The school’s bookkeeper told deputies none of the 10 students who said they paid Johnson for the field trip were noted by the school as having paid for it.
