HOUSTON – A former Texas middle school teacher who said she became pregnant after having sex with a 13-year-old student “on almost a daily basis” pleaded guilty this week.
Alexandria Vera, 24, is accused of having a sexual relationship with a middle school student.
Vera told officials that she met the boy during a summer school session.
According to court documents obtained by KHOU, Vera said she and the victim, who was 13 at the time, “love each other” and that they had sex almost daily for nine months.
She also claimed the boy’s family accepted their relationship.
When the teen impregnated Vera, she says his family was supportive and “excited.”
However, she says she aborted the pregnancy when Child Protective Services began questioning her about her relationship with the teen, KPRC reports.
This week, Vera pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Her sentencing is scheduled for January.
The boy, now 14, will remain in foster care through Aug. 2017, KHOU reports.
His parents have also been ordered to undergo therapy.
