The middle school teacher from the Houston area who got pregnant by her eighth-grade student was sentenced to 10 years in prison Friday.
As reported by KHOU-TV, 24-year-old Alexandria Vera was impregnated by her 13-year-old student during a sexual relationship that lasted nine months.
Vera was initially charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child, but later pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
During the trial, Vera’s psychologist revealed that pornographic pictures of the victim were found on her cellphone, and she allowed other students to have sex in her home.
The psychologist’s testimony also revealed Vera and the victim’s father pretended they were in a relationship with each other to try to cover up the the actual relationship from Child Protective Services.
It was reported that the victim’s family spend many weekends and holidays with Vera and her 6-year-old daughter.
When CPS began to further investigate the teacher/student relationship, Vera had an abortion. The victim was the father.
