Texas Teacher Charged For Having Sex With Her 15-Year-Old Student While Pregnant.
A Texas middle school teacher has been sentenced to jail time for having sex with her 15-year-old student while she was pregnant.
Katherine Harper had a months-long sexual relationship last year with a student she met at Tidwell Middle School in Roanoke, where she had been an English teacher, cheerleading coach, and tennis coach.
According to People, police said when she was arrested in April 2017, she was eight months pregnant, but it was unclear whether the teen was the baby’s father.
Harper who is 28, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault of a child and one count of having an improper relationship with a student. She was sentenced to six years in prison and 10 years probation on Thursday.
After Harper was apprehended, police said she and the student had exchanged naked photos of each other using their phones, and sent provocative text messages until they finally had sex at his home. Apparently, when school officials launched an investigation into the relationship in December 2016 after receiving an anonymous tip, the boy cried and admitted to the relationship when he was questioned.
