Teacher dating 18 year old student
In a 2006 case, the country's largest teachers union advised against handing a 33-year-old Washington choir teacher a felony for his alleged affair with an 18-year-old student.(He'd been charged with first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor.) Sleeping with a student was clearly against the teacher's code of conduct, explained a spokesman for the Washington Education Association.
She met — and fell in love with — the boy last summer at Stovall Middle School in Houston, according to court documents obtained by ABC 13.
And a teacher could rightfully lose his or her job and license.
But in terms of the law, "Eighteen-year-olds aren't kids," he said. And should consenting adults be subject to criminal charges?
“And then they were talking about it.” “That kid was always over (Vera’s house in Spring, Texas,) and she always told (neighbors) it was her brother,” a neighbor told WFAA-ABC.
At the fall open house, Vera officially met his parents and was introduced as his girlfriend.
The community then watched in horror, as Hooker packed his bags and moved in with his 18-year-old student, Jordan Powers, who was just a grade above one of his own children.
