A former Houston-area high school teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old student during spring break, a report said.
Katrina Maxwell allegedly admitted to police that on two occasions she had sex with the male student while she taught at C.E. King High School, according to new court documents obtained by Click2Houston.
The alleged relationship between Maxwell and the minor was first noticed by another district employee, the report said.
That worker reported an incident where the teacher allegedly tossed scissor’s at the student’s head because he was sitting next to his girlfriend.
Maxwell allegedly admitted to investigators that she and the student had sex in the backseat of her car. The student told police the pair had sex several times between March and April, court records say.
Sheldon Independent School District conducted their own probe and fired Maxwell.
“The district has conducted a thorough investigation and upon completion, we find these reports to be substantiated,” the district said in a statement obtained by the outlet.
“Sheldon ISD is deeply saddened that this occurred, and we are committed to continued cooperation with law enforcement to ensure Mrs. Maxwell is prosecuted to the fullest extent.”
