Pasadena Independent School District Sub Teacher Accused of Sexually Abusing Student

A 23-year-old substitute teacher for the Pasadena Independent School District has been charged with multiple crimes for allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old male student in 2018.

According to court documents, 23-year-old Olivia Huerta was a substitute for a social science teacher at Sam Rayburn High School sometime between January and April of 2018. Police say that during her time at this high school, she brought a 16-year-old student to her parents' home and sexually assaulted him there.

The student told a friend about the sexual activity and that friend told school administrators, who called the police.

Police interviewed the victim, who told them that he and the teacher had walked to her parents' house, where they had sex. He also told investigators that the two exchanged phone numbers and communicated over text messaging and SnapChat.

Police also interviewed Huerta, who they say admitted to having sex with the student. Investigators looked at her phone and found a text message conversation with the student which mentioned the sexual abuse.

Huerta has been charged with second-degree felonies of improper relationship with a student and sexual assault of a child between the ages of 14 and 16.

Legal Recourse For Victims of Teacher Sex Abuse

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan helps sex abuse victims and their families find answers, support, and justice. Here are a few thoughts from Marc on the legal rights of teacher sex abuse victims and their families:

Our nation's schools have serious and widespread issued with teachers and other staff members sexually abusing students. It's extremely important for school administrators to make sure all employees are trustworthy and that sufficient safeguards are in place for preventing sexual abuse.

In some cases, the abuse may have been preventable if not for negligence by the school district - such as failure to run background checks before hiring new employees. When negligence was a factor in failing to prevent abuse, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.
