Texas Teacher Alexandria Vera Pleads Guilty Over Sexual Relationship With 13-Year-Old Student
An Aldine ISD teacher who was impregnated by the 13-year-old student she was in a sexual relationship with has pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child.
According to The Houston Chronicle, 24-year-old Alexandria Vera faces up to 30 years in prison. However, her plea deal could lead to probation in the form of deferred adjudication, which could potentially leave Vera's record clean of a conviction.
Vera was sought by authorities in May after they learned of the improper relationship. After being arrested and charged, Vera was freed on a $100,000 bail. As conditions of her release, Vera wore a GPS ankle monitor, couldn't have any contact with the 13-year-old boy and had to stay away from schools.
Court records show Vera was pregnant and terminated the pregnancy. The victim's family reportedly supported the relationship.
A sentencing hearing for Vera is scheduled for January when State District Judge Michael McSpadden will make a final decision.
