A former Texas sixth-grade teacher is going to be spending 60 days in prison after having a three-year relationship with a student of hers. During the relationship, the student was 12 to 15 years old. The sentence will not begin until June 2023 because she is currently pregnant.
32-year-old Marka Bodine plead guilty to the charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child and was sentenced by Harris County Judge George Glass to 60 days in prison and 10 years of probation.
The Harris County District Attorney’s Office was shocked by the light sentence as they were pushing for 20 years in prison.
