Houston, TX (The Weekly Vice) - Ellen Wermeling, a 32-year-old counselor at Aldine MacArthur High School, has been charged with repeatedly having sex with a student.
According to police, an investigation was launched after the student told a school staff member that he and Wermeling had engaged in sex on multiple occasions.
Investigators say the student contacted Wermeling through her Instagram account on Feb. 28 and she agreed to pick him up so they could "hang out" at her residence.
It was there Wermeling and the student watched a movie and then engaged in sexual intercourse. The teen told detectives that he and Wermeling also had sex at her residence on March 6 and March 8.
During an interview with police, Wermeling stated that she never spoke to the teen through her Instagram account. She reportedly closed her Instagram account on March 25, the same day she was contacted about the allegations.
Wermeling also denied that the teen had ever been to her residence.
Wermeling was booked into jail and charged with improper relationship between educator and student. She was released after posting a $10,000 bond.
She is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
