Emily Marie Anderson, 35, a Texas teacher has admitted to sexual abuse of a minor, a 15-year-old student in a Biology classroom closet.

Anderson was arrested in August 2021 and charged with sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony. She was again arrested in December 2021 and charged with a felony of improper relationship between an educator and a student.

According to KSAT-TV, police began to investigate Anderson after they heard the complaints of the victim’s mother. Based on the mother’s testimony, sexually explicit texts were found on her son’s phone. The police traced the texts to Anderson, who was then a special education teacher at Canyon High School in New Braunfels, Texas.

The New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung reported that Anderson admitted to the police that she had sex with the minor in a biology classroom closet.

Anderson pleaded guilty to the charges and PEOPLE confirmed that she is required to spend 60 days in jail over the course of her 10-year probation period. She will also pay a $2,000 fine and complete 500 hours of community service.

Part of the agreement will be that Anderson register as a sex offender for the rest of her life. The judge also filed a protective order that prohibits her from contacting the victim.

During the court hearing, the victim’s mother addressed Anderson, saying that her son now suffers from depression and anxiety.

“I trusted you,” the mother said as reported by the Herald-Zeitung. “You knew what we were going through, and you knew he was behind in school.”

Sexual Abuse laws

“When I saw those messages — when I went through that phone, my [instinct] was to go and get you out of that school and deal with you myself,” she continued.

As per provisions of the law, any sexual abuse involving children or violence will have a harsh sentence. For example, a violation of the federal statutes involving the sexual exploitation of children has a minimum sentence of 15 years. Charges of first-degree rape or sexual assault will be punished by 15 years to life imprisonment, depending on the state and the circumstances of the crime.

So, why only 60 days for Anderson?
