It’s a disturbing story that has sent shock waves across a Houston-area community.
She’s 24, he’s 13.
Not only that, the Houston Chronicle reports Alexandria Vera aborted the pregnancy after a child welfare investigator questioned her earlier this year about the relationship, which she denied at the time.
Vera surrendered to authorities at the Montgomery County Jail–just north of Houston, and has since been released on a $100,000 bond.
Court documents show she was introduced to the boy’s family as his girlfriend and that his parents didn’t object, but school officials and the law did.
Vera was removed from the classroom and placed on leave by the Aldine School District in April and now police have an arrest warrant for her, but they haven’t been able to find her. She faces a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child.
