A 23-year-old world history teacher from Houston, Texas is accused of having sex with one of her 15-year-old students over the summer after meeting up with him at a Chick-fil A. Police claim that Michelle Schiffer has already admitted to the allegations, Click 2 Houston reports. They added that she additionally confessed to smoking marijuana with the teen in her car before driving to her friend’s apartment to have sex.
It wasn’t an isolated incident.
According to Chron, in a separate second occasion, Schiffer allegedly picked up the victim in a park so that they could cruise around and smoke pot. At some point during their ride, Schiffer allegedly pulled over so the two could have sex, according to a criminal complaint.
Their illegal sexual encounters were brought to the school’s attention after a student tipped off the principal of Cypress-Springs High School. The school district released a statement in light of the allegations: “We will continue to protect our students and not tolerate relationships of an inappropriate nature.”
The Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District said that upon hearing of the assault, they swiftly removed Schiffer from the campus. She has been subsequently put on administrative leave.
According to Fox News, Schiffer has been charged with improper relationship with a student. In addition to that, she was also charged with the sexual assault of a child. She is reportedly out of jail, after being bailed out on a $30,000 bond. If she is convicted, she could face up to two decades behind bars.
