Texas Teacher Sentenced for Sex with Her 15-Year-Old Student While Pregnant

A Texas middle school teacher has been sentenced to prison for having sex with her 15-year-old student — including when she was pregnant, PEOPLE confirms.

Katherine Harper had a months-long sexual relationship last year with a student she met at Tidwell Middle School in Roanoke, where she’d been an English teacher, cheerleading coach and tennis coach, police said when she was arrested in April 2017. At the time of her arrest, she was eight months pregnant, but it was unclear whether the teen was the baby’s father.
