This 27-year-old Texas high school science teacher has been accused of having sex with her 17-year-old student, and although 17 is the age of consent in Texas, teachers are not allowed to have such contacts with their students. Her lawyer claims she is not guilty, as the only reason for her arrest is the kid’s statement – that’s why she is smiling on her mugshot so innocently. She is married to her husband since 2013 and was previously teaching at an elementary school. It’s still unsure if she is really guilty and if she’s going to be punished.
