Houston teacher impregnated by student may get probation under plea deal

The controversial Houston middle school teacher, who was previously charged for having a sexual relationship with a minor, recently struck a plea deal for probation, an article of KHOU reported on November 16.

According to reports, a guilty plea of “aggravated sexual assault of a child” was entered by 25-year-old Alexandria Vera. A charge of “continuous sexual abuse of a child” was initially filed against the former Stovall Middle School teacher that could have a 30-year punishment. Vera was charged after a 13-year-old student with whom she was having a relationship got her pregnant. After learning she was pregnant in January, Vera reportedly terminated the baby. Vera’s legal counsel is hoping the judge will consider a probation penalty so his client can avoid having a criminal record.
