She was there to counsel him, but ended up having a sexual relationship with him, and it only ended when his mom caught both naked in bed.
Authorities said 33-year-old Shannon Hathaway, who was employed at Harwood Junior High School in Texas as a counselor has turned herself in to police after a student’s mom caught her in bed with her 17-year-old son.
She was booked on Thursday on charges for an improper relationship between an educator and a student, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
The New York Post reported that Bedford Police Department issued a warrant for the 33-year-old counselor on Wednesday due to her alleged relationship with a ninth-grade student.
Authorities said the pair was sexually involved until the 17-year-old student’s mother walked in on them naked in bed.
Police contacted school officials in May about the allegations and the counselor was placed on paid leave, news station DFW-TV reported.
The New York Post said Hathaway reportedly resigned before surrendering Thursday to authorities.
The school district notified parents Thursday in an automated call.
“There is no evidence to suggest the alleged behavior happened on the Harwood Junior High campus,” Superintendent Steve Chapman said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
