PASADENA, Texas — A Pasadena ISD substitute teacher is accused of having an improper relationship with a student at Sam Rayburn High School.

Olivia Huerta, 23, is charged with improper relationship with a student and sexual assault of a child. She appeared before a judge Thursday morning.

Police with Pasadena ISD say Huerta had an improper relationship with the student that stretched over two school years and began when that boy was just 16 years old.

Investigators say a school official reported the inappropriate sexual relationship to police after the victim admitted to it and told another student who in turn told school administrators.

The victim told administrators that he had met Huerta the year before when she substituted in one of his classes. He said that between January and April of this year, he walked with Huerta to her parents’ home nearby. That is where the sexual encounter occurred.
