A female teacher has been busted for alleged sexual misconduct with a trio of teen boys. The teacher, Ashlyn Faye Bell, 24, of the Texarkana Independent School District, had sex with two of her 17-year-old students and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old last fall.
She has been charged with two counts of improper relationship between educator and student and one count of sexual assault of a child, the Texarkana Gazette reports. She faces 20 years in jail if convicted.
According to investigators, the educator came to the attention of police after a teacher heard a group of male students snickering that one of the boy’s had gotten Bell pregnant.
But the boy being teased told his pals Bell said he “was not the daddy” of her baby.
The Texarkana Gazette reports that Bell worked in the school library and was employed there from Aug. 5, 2019, to May 22, 2020.
One of the 17-year-old boys told police he first hooked up with her during the Thanksgiving holiday. The duo allegedly met at a local truck stop after exchanging steamy messages on SnapChat.
Her baby was asleep in a car seat when Bell met the boy for the rendezvous, he claimed, adding the twosome then retired to the teacher’s home where they had sex.
The other 17-year-old told detectives he had been to Bell’s home several times before they consummated their relationship.
As for the alleged 16-year-old victim, he also broke the ice with the teacher on SnapChat. After a Nov. 22, 2019 football game, he reached out and told her he wanted to go over to visit. The boy claimed it was a joke.
But he says Bell strapped her baby in the car seat, went to the boy’s home and brought him back to her house where she allegedly sexually assaulted him. She drove him home around 5 a.m. and the pair met up again the following weekend.
