          August 15, 2016

          Former Texas high school teacher Tanya Ramirez says that after exchanging more than 300 text messages over three-and-a-half weeks with a 17-year-old student at the school where she worked, she invited him to her house and they had sex. The 31-year-old claims the teen pursued her and it was 100 percent consensual.
