Texas teacher accused of sex acts with two boys

Holly Lopez, 32-year-old special education teacher at Lexington Middle School, Austin, Texas, has been arrested and is accused of engaging in sexual relations with two male teens, 13 and 14 years old. Lopez was arrested for improper relationship between educator and student and for aggravated sexual assault. The affidavit said Lopez and one of the boys exchanged about 841 text messages between Jan. 18 and Feb. 11 and another 292 texts between Feb. 11 and Feb. 20. The 14-year-old student told police Lopez regularly helped him with math, but as the school year progressed, the student-teacher relationship became inappropriate. According to the arrest affidavit, the student said Lopez "would treat me like a boyfriend and touch my leg sometimes." On Feb. 11, the messaging turned into sex in the home of the boy's 13-year-old friend, also a Lexington Middle School student, in Pflugerville. "She arrived at the residence with condoms and then proceeded to engage in sexual intercourse with both students," said Pflugerville Police Department Lt. Laura Wilkes. Wilkes said Lopez's contact with the 14-year-old boy didn't stop there. On Feb. 28, the vicmtim broke his silence and went to police. "The chief of police at Lexington ISD actually is the one who received the original outcry of this case. One of the students, the main victim, went to him because Mrs. Lopez was continually texting after the incident and he wanted it to stop," Wilkes said. Lopez is being held in the Travis County Jail. Her bond is set at $100,000. The grand jury could add more charges against her, but if she is found guilty of the current charges, she faces between five and 99 years in prison.
