This week’s middle-aged middle school teacher busted for getting busy with a student is Corrie Anne Long.
Police say Long, 43, had a sexual relationship of indeterminate length with a 15-year-old eighth-grade boy, according to Houston-area CBS affiliate KHOU.
Long, who is married, is a special education math teacher at Hopper Middle School in Cypress, Texas, a fringe suburb northwest of Houston.
Court documents say a second student witnessed “odd behavior” between Long and the unidentified boy, then reported the behavior to a teacher.
The odd behavior allegedly included Long sitting on the boy’s lap and — in an afternoon tutorial — Long whacking the boy playfully on the butt.
The boy also would allegedly enter Long’s classroom and, among other things, play flirtatiously with her brunette locks.
In the course of a subsequent investigation, police say, the boy admitted to having sexual rendezvous with Long, who had been his math teacher. Long would get the boy excused from another class and take him to an empty classroom where they would have sex.
It’s not clear how many raunchy dalliances occurred. However, the student admitted to one just before Thanksgiving in 2013.
The boy also swore up and down to investigators that he told Long that their covert carnal encounters needed to stop. However, he said, she merely told him to tell no one out of fear that she could get fired.
Long, who has taught in the Cypress-Fairbanks school district since 2002, has been placed on administrative leave since the allegations surfaced.
“The District took immediate action to remove the teacher once the allegations were made, and we will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement in this matter,” school district officials said in a statement obtained by KHOU.
It’s not clear if she is still getting paid.
Long was arraigned and is currently out of jail on a $60,000 bond.
As the CBS station notes, the current imbroglio isn’t the teacher’s first brush with the law. Back in 1992, when she was likely a college student, Long dealt with a public lewdness charge.
