A 24-year-old Texas middle school teacher is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old male student for several months, prosecutors say.
Alexandria Vera, of Spring, had the boy as a student at the start of the 2015 school year and became pregnant in January, KHOU-TV reports. She had an abortion after the investigation began, authorities said.
She has been placed on administrative leave from her position as an English teacher at Stovall Middle School in the Aldine Independent School District, which serves parts of Harris County, including portions of Houston. The victim is an eighth grader who has since turned 14, police say.
