The Weekly Vice) - Tonya Flink, a 39-year-old computer technology teacher at Haltom High School has been jailed after she allegedly had sex with four students in a single year.
According to Haltom City Police, an investigation was launched in September 2011 after the parents of a former Haltom High student contacted authorities to report that Flink had engaged in an inappropriate relationship with their son while he was a student at the school.
The parents told detectives that their son had informed them that he and Flink were living together and had been dating for a long period of time.
To bolster their claim, the parents provided police with phone records that showed more than 850 phone calls took place between Flink and their son over a six-month period.
During a police interview, the alleged victim told detectives that the relationship began when he stayed after school with Flink to get help with his studies. The victim stated that the relationship quickly turned sexual, and involved "everything you can imagine," according to the arrest affidavit.
At one point in the relationship, Flink reportedly told the student that she liked "young Hispanic boys," according to the report.
During the investigation, police discovered three additional students who allegedly had sexual relationships with Flink. One of those students told investigators that the relationship started during after-school tutoring and eventually led to a sexual relationship with her. Two other alleged victims have refused to cooperate with investigators.
All of the alleged inappropriate relationships took place during the 2010-2011 school year. Flink resigned her position at the school in August, 2011 and was hired at Amon Carter-Riverside High School three days later. She was placed on leave by the school six weeks later when administrators learned about the investigation.
Flink was jailed and charged with improper relationship between educator and student in late December. She has since been indicted by a Tarrant County grand jury and is now free on $10,000 bond.
