A teacher in Texas pleads guilty to sleeping with her student.

Jennifer Riojas, a Texas high school teacher, pleaded guilty to a charge of improper relationship with a student last Thursday. After a year of giving birth to a child, she took a six year plea including probation and to give up her teaching certificate. The State will not label her as a sex offender.

Her relationship with he 16-year-old came to light after students at the Fort Worth highschool found out that she was pregnant over a year ago. The teenager claimed that there were three sexual encounters with his teacher. One encounter was at a hospital room while he recovered from an injury and the others were in a hotel room. Riojas only admits to one encounter.

The teacher is set to transfer her probation to another county. She has also promised to never teach again.
