There’s been a new development in the case of 24-year-old Texas middle school teacher Alexandria Vera, who has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student — one that left her pregnant.
According to Vera, the relationship — which first came to the school district’s attention in April — is the real deal, with the teacher insisting the two are “in love.” It was an opinion, however, that law enforcement didn’t share.
As 6ABC reports, Vera turned herself in on Wednesday, after police issued a warrant for her arrest.

Nonetheless, after Child Protective Services began to investigate the case in February, Vera became nervous and reportedly aborted the child.
Vera now faces a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child, and has a bond set at $100,000.
