According to a court documents, the 23-year-old Huerta filled in for a social science teacher at Sam Rayburn High School some time between January and April of 2018. During her time as a substitute, Huerta allegedly took a 16-year-old student to her parent's home and had sex with him. This incident was revealed when the student told a friend that he had sex with a teacher, which led to his friend to telling school officials.
During his interview, the student claimed that he and Huerta exchanged phone numbers and texted as well as Snapchatted each other. He was unable to remember her name, but he described the teacher as a "short, curvy Hispanic woman." He also picked out Huerta during a photo lineup.
Huerta later admitted to having sex with the student. She gave the authorities her phone, which held conversations that alluded to their relationship. She now faces second-degree felony charges for improper relationship with a student and sexual assault of a child between the ages of 14 and 16. A bond of $40,000 was set for Huerta on Thursday.
After the accusations hit headlines, the Pasadena Independent School District released a statement to the media in which they say they take sexual assault allegations seriously.
"Upon receiving the allegation, the administration at Sam Rayburn High School immediately notified district administration and the Pasadena ISD Police Department," the statement reads. "The accused individual was promptly removed from campus and is no longer employed by Pasadena ISD."
