US female teacher charged for ‘illicit affair’ with 13-year-old student
According to the Independent, English teacher Alexandria Vera, 24, turned herself over to police after a warrant was issued for her arrest.
“She turned herself in, in the company of a bail agent. Bail has been provided and she has just left,” The Independent reported Lt Brady Fitzgerald of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office as saying.
Reports said that the relationship between Ms Vera and the boy began when he was a student of hers in summer school last year at Stovall Middle School.
Court documents reveal that the relationship apparently had the blessing of the boy’s family. Ms Vera told police she initially resisted the advances of a boy who was assigned to her English class at the start of the school year.
But according to the court documents, a school police officer said Ms Vera had admitted to having a relationship with the student which lasted from September 2015 to the end of January 2016.
Mr Vera claimed she and the teenager were in love, and that has been introduced to his family as his girlfriend. The boy’s parents have reportedly accepted the relationship and have including her in family gatherings.
Aldine Independent School District issued a statement that claimed it had been quick to act.
The teacher was removed from the school after allegations of her affair with the male students surfaced.
