A teacher who fell pregnant after having se-x with her 13-year-old pupil could face up to 30 years in prison.
Alexandria Vera, of Texas, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault after she was impregnated by a teenage pupil.
Ms Vera had se-x with the boy almost every day for nine months, according to an Aldine Independent School District Police Department spokesperson.
She was initially charged with continuous se-x abuse of a child, which carries a possible life sentence, though pleading guilty to the lesser charge potentially cuts her sentence down to 30 years.

She told authorities that the sexual encounters started in last September after they met at a middle school. They texted and flirted for some time before they kissed in Ms Vera’s car.
They went on to have se-x at the boy’s home and sleepovers at Ms Vera’s house.
She claims they had a relationship and that they ‘love each other’.
The boy’s parents were allegedly aware of their relationship, with Ms Vera attending family gatherings and being introduced as his girlfriend.
The boy, now 14 years old, is now in foster care where he will remain until August 2017. His parents have been ordered to attend parenting classes and therapy.
Ms Vera aborted his child.
