The story of a middle school teacher’s love affair with a student is going viral after the insane chain of events that surrounded the months-long ordeal.
The steamy tryst started during summer school, when 24-year-old Alexandra Vera encountered a 13-year-old student and the two began flirting with one another. According to MailOnline, the boy failed to show up for school one day and Vera gave him her number over Instagram, and the rest is almost too wild to believe.
The pair would end up having sex a short time later, and they would continue doing so nearly daily for months on end. Apparently, the boy’s parents were aware of the relationship and didn’t seem to mind it at all, Vera told police.
But things took a turn for the worse after Vera became pregnant in January. She ended up having the child aborted after Child Protective Services began poking around to see what was going on. Now Vera is in some serious trouble.
More from MailOnline:
The boy asked Vera if they could hang out and she agreed. They then began taking drives in her car and kissing and soon started having sex on an almost daily basis, according to court documents.
Their first sexual encounter happened after Vera went to drop the child off, but his parents were not home. They then went back to her house.
And the couple didn’t keep their relationship a secret – even at school.
One student told Eyewitness news: ‘[The student] like grabbed her butt and everybody saw it. And then they were talking about it.’
The eighth-grade English teacher, who has one child, told police that she and the teen ‘are in love’ and that she had been introduced to his family as his girlfriend, reported ABC-13.
She also claims that the family are accepting of the relationship and often include her in family gatherings.
According to court documents, Vera said the parents allowed the teen to spend the night at her house, after which she would drop him off at home in the morning so he could catch the bus to Stovall Middle School in Houston, Texas.
In January, things reached a peak when Vera fell pregnant with the young boy’s baby – but she told officers his family ‘were very supportive and excited about the baby’, reported KPRC.
Vera decided to have an abortion however, after reportedly getting nervous about their relationship when Child Protective
Services unexpectedly showed up at school in February, to question her and the student about their relationship.
She reportedly denied the relationship at the time, according to the DA’s office.
Vera has since turned herself in to authorities, according to The Sun. She faces a slew of charges, including the continual sexual abuse of a child, and now faces up to 99 years in prison for her crimes. There’s no word on whether or not the parents are being investigated for their role in the relationship.
Normally we don’t do such stories, but it’s important for parents to be aware of the predators that may be lurking in their schools. While some may say the boy had the time of his life, 13 is undoubtedly entirely too young for such a relationship to take place, and Vera has to have some serious mental issues to even consider doing what she did. Thankfully she was captured and won’t be able to victimize any other boys.
