Houston, Texas area teacher Helen Page has been arrested and accused of carrying on an inappropriate relationship with a student over the phone.
According to KPRC in Houston, Texas teacher Helen Page, 49, began communicating with the 15-year-old last summer.
Investigators with the District Attorney’s Office found nude pictures during a forensic investigation of Page’s cellphone.
This led to a felony charge of “improper relationship with a student.”
An Aldine Independent School District teacher was arrested and charged after being accused of an improper relationship with a student in the Houston area.
