A Texas middle school teacher accused of having sex with one of her 13-year-old students and becoming pregnant with his child has turned herself in, according to officials.
Police are currently trying to track down 24-year-old middle school teacher Alexandria Vera on charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child. Vera and a 13-year-old student allegedly engaged in a months-long sexual relationship beginning in the summer of 2015.
It all started in summer school, when the boy asked Vera if they could connect on Instagram. After initially refusing, in September she succumbed to his charms, claiming the two fell madly in love.
Alexandria Vera, 24, turned herself in at a suburban jail after a warrant was issued for her arrest. Vera is out on $100,000 bond, according to Sheriff’s spokesman Brady Fitzgerald, but faces a felony charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child, according to KIAH.
Vera was an eighth grade English teacher at Stovall Middle School.
