Police Search For Teacher Who Got Pregnant By A 13-Year-Old Student
A teacher accused of engaging in a relationship with a 13-year-old student - which resulted in her getting pregnant - is currently being hunted by police.
Alexandria Vera, 24, has apparently admitted to the sexual abuse that started in September last year.
After the boy failed to turn up for one of her English classes at Stovall Middle School in Houston, Texas, he attempted to communicate with her over Instagram. When she received the message, she gave the boy her phone number.
Vera told police officers that the student asked if the pair could meet up and she agreed. According to Click2Houston, she then drove to the student's house to pick him up. They then drove around which ended up with them sharing a kiss.
The next day, Vera drove over to the student's house again because his parents were not home. Apparently, Vera said this was the first time she and the student had sex.
A month later, the school had an 'open house' event, where Vera was introduced to the child's parents as his 'girlfriend'. The family accepted the relationship and even invited Vera to family gatherings.
The pair had began having sex on an almost daily basis and made no effort to hide their affair - according to court documents.
One pupil told Eyewitness news: "[The student] like grabbed her butt and everybody saw it. And then they were talking about it."
In the January, it is reported that Vera fell pregnant with the boy's baby. She told police that the student's family were told of the pregnancy and that they were 'supportive and excited' about the baby.
Court documents revealed that Vera ended up having an abortion. Child Protective Services unexpectedly showed up at the school to question her and the student about their relationship and she became nervous.
She now faces a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child. However, police currently cannot find her.
