Former Comal ISD teacher pleads guilty to having sex with student in classroom closet

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A former special education teacher in the Comal Independent School District is being ordered to spend 60 days in jail after pleading guilty to having sex with a student in a biology classroom closet.

Emily Anderson, 35, also has to pay a $2,000 fine, perform 500 hours of community service and cannot have any contact with her 15-year-old victim ever again.
