A 28-year-old high school maths teacher has been arrested over alleged sexual relationships with two 17-year-old students.
Haeli Wey, who taught math at Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, was booked into jail Thursday after claims emerged that she had sex with a student ten times after seducing him on a Christian training program.
The unnamed student told sheriff’s deputies that he slept with Wey in August and September of 2015 before breaking off the relationship when he heard about a second love interest.
The other student said he went on a hike with Wey in September and admitted kissing her in a hammock according to KVUE.
Wey was charged with two counts of conducting an improper relationship between educator and student.
According to the Texas penal code, the charge covers engaging in ‘sexual contact, sexual intercourse, or deviate [anal or oral] sexual intercouse’ with an enrolled student.
The second-degree felony can be punished with as much as 20 years in prison.
The first student told deputies that Wey and he had sex ‘approximately ten times’ after meeting him at a student ministry event.
Wey then accompanied the student and his family to Africa, where the relationship continued before foundering after they got back.
The accusations came to light in October when a student tipped off school administrators to cellphone messages between Wey and a student which sparked an investigation.
Wey was fired from her job in late October, before being formally charged this week.
According to the Eanes Independent School District, which runs nine Texan schools including Westlake High, Wey passed background checks before being hired.
She has since given up her teacher certification. She was booked into the Travis County Jail but has since been released on bail.
