TEXAS: A middle school teacher who admitted having ‘near-daily sex’ with a 13-year-old pupil has been jailed for 10 years. Alexandria Vera, 24, claimed the boy’s parents were happy that their son stayed over at her house and even approved of her keeping his baby when she fell pregnant by her child lover. The paedophile’s relationship with the young lad even extended to the classroom, said a fellow student, who witnessed the boy grabbing the teacher’s bottom in front of class-mates. State District Judge Michael McSpadden, jailing the school Miss from Houston, Texas, said: “We want out educators to teach our students. “We want them to keep their hands off the students.”
The judge said the sentence, which was reduced from 30 years after Vera admitted a lesser sex abuse charge, sent out a clear message. Vera told law enforcers she was impregnated by the boy after meeting him as an eighth grader at her summer school English class in 2015. A therapist speaking on Vera’s behalf told the court : “I think she was driven by being in love with him.” Investigators said Vera, who had an abortion , had sex with the boy ‘near-daily’ on an almost ‘continuous basis’. The case made headlines last year after Vera briefly went on the run before turning herself in. She was released on bail and caused a stir when she was spotted jogging around the running track at the school where she seduced the lad.
