PERVERT: Rachel Gonzales was allegedly caught having sex with a 13-year-old boy in a car
Rachel Gonzales, 44, was also booked on a charge of On-Line Solicitation.
Further investigations showed that she had exchanged flirty text messages with the boy for some time.
The boy’s father, from Bay City, Texas, about 80 miles south west of Houston, caught the pair in the back seat of a parked car, according to local police.
The next day, the District Attorney asked Bay City Independent School District PD to turn the case over to Bay City Police Department.
Local officials got hold of the boy’s phone and found evidence of a relationship between the teen and Gonzales, who taught at the local elementary school.
She was served warrants on December 22 and taken to Matagorda County Jail.
She was released on bond but has officially resigned as a fourth-grade teacher at Cherry Elementary School, according to the local school district.
Cases of inappropriate relationships between teachers and underage students in Texas have increased by a whopping 36% in the past year, according to the local newspaper.
