But Judge Michael Mc Spadden said he wants to send a message to the community by giving Vera some prison time.“We want our educators to teach our students,” Mc Spadden said, according to the Houston Chronicle.One of the messages from Gonzalez allegedly said: "I'm in love with a kid, and I hate that I can't tell anyone." The complaint indicates that in late February, Gonzalez picked the student up and they kissed in her car.
Though categorically denying rumors she was having sex with students from the school, Swogger was quoted as saying, “I was stupid, very stupid.
I already know I was and I can understand you looking at me wrong.
The complaint indicates that while on Gonzalez's couch watching a movie, she inappropriately touched the student.
Additionally, the student said that he and Gonzalez had kissed on the mouth multiple times prior to the date in question.
The detective in this investigation learned on March 1st, 2017 that an 11-year-old student and Gonzalez had been messaging on Snapchat and Instagram, after it was reported by relatives of the victim.
