What led to Alexandria Vera English middle school teacher and mother of one sexually preying on her thirteen year old student?
Alexandria Vera a 24 year old Houston, Texas middle school teacher is on the run after having being impregnated by her 13 year old student- with the blessing of his family.
Since charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child, the Stovall Middle School, English teacher shockingly told prosecutors of having sexually engaged with the young boy since September.
The pair’s ‘friendship’ according to the teacher escalated after the pair first started flirting during last year’s summer school session.
Matters soon progressed after the mother of a five year old daughter told of giving the child her number on Instagram after the boy failed to show up to class one day. Soon after the teacher told of being in a relationship with her 13 year old student.
A report via the Houston Chronicle, told of the school principal, Elsa Wright saying in court documents that she learned from the defendant that the pair began a sexual relationship in September 2015 when the boy was just 13 years old.
According to a report via ABC-13, 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 carnal relations on an almost daily basis, according to court documents.
Their first first intimate encounter happened after Vera went to drop the child off, but his parents were not home. They then went back to her house.
So enamored were the pair, rather than choosing to hide their illicit relationship, teacher and student entertained few inhibitions.
One student told: ‘[The student] like grabbed her butt and everybody saw it. And then they were talking about it.’
The eighth-grade English teacher, told police that she and the teen ‘are in love’ telling investigators she’d been introduced to his family as his girlfriend.
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 school.
Matters escalated come January when Alexandria Vera fell pregnant with the young boy’s baby, with the middle school teacher telling authorities that the child’s family ‘were very supportive and excited about the baby’, according to a report via KPRC.
That said, Vera decided to seek an abortion after becoming nervous about their relationship when Child Protective Services unexpectedly showed up at school in February, seeking to question her and the student about their relationship.
She reportedly denied the relationship at the time, according to the DA’s office.
Soon after, Alexandria Vera had her phone forensically analyzed by the officer where it was disclosed many messages between the student and teacher were consistent of the pair engaged in the throes of an intimate relationship.
Vera now faces charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child but police have been unable to find her to serve the arrest warrant.
According to Texas law, the felony sexual abuse charge carries a minimum sentence of 25 to 99 years in prison. Probation and early release are not options, according to the law, because it is an aggravated offense.
Aldine ISD, the organization that runs Stovall Middle School, issued the following statement to ABC-13: ‘Aldine ISD has been made aware that charges have been filed against a former Stovall Middle School teacher involved in inappropriate behavior with a male student.
‘When the allegation was made in April, the teacher was immediately removed from the school and placed on administrative leave.
‘Aldine ISD Police investigated the incident and turned their findings over to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
‘The safety and security of Aldine ISD’s students and staff remains a priority of the school district.’
Not necessarily understood is what prompted Vera to sexually prey on the teen, along with abusing her position of power and authority, which some wonder may have been the igniting factor between the pair.
