A teacher’s aide in Texas has been jailed after she admitted to having sex with three teenage students after initially claiming she thought it was legal to do so.
Ashlyn Faye Bell, 24, was sentenced to four years behind bars by an all-female jury in Bowie County on Monday, despite claiming she thought only teachers were barred from doing so.
The single mom admitted to having sex with three students during that time period. Two of the boys were aged 17, while the other was aged 16.
While the age of consent in Texas is 17, it is illegal for an educator to have sex with a student of any age unless they are married to one another.
