MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TEXAS: An ex-teacher has been sentenced to prison for 20 years after she admitted to having sex with a teenage boy, 15, and forcing another teenage girl to have sex with the boy while she watched the two in the act. Leticia Lowery who hails from Montgomery County in Texas had instructed a 13-year-old girl to perform a sex act, according to court documents. She had pleaded guilty on Tuesday to charges of second-degree sexual assault of a child and first-degree performance by a child.

The 40-year-old had sex with the teenage boy at her home in November last year. She had also been accused of telling a young teenage girl to perform a sex act, as per complaint documents. Assistant District Attorney Laura Bond said, "It prevented the children involved that she victimized and sexually assaulted from having to testify and I think that's a win all day." Prosecutors reveal that Lowery was released on a $10,000 bond after an incident that took place in May last year. "I think often times when people hear about offenses that are committed by a female against a male child, people tend to minimize it but the effect on the child is still the same," Bond added. "Her taking responsibility and preventing 20 years in prison is a statement on the fact she knew what Montgomery County and the community and jurors would've sentenced her," Bond continued. 

According to Fox Atlanta, Lowery had allegedly picked up the teen boy and the teen girl who was with him. As per court documents, Lowery then dropped the girl off at a friend's house for a birthday party and drove back to the boy's house where she allegedly had sex with him on his couch. Reports reveal that the boy told the authorities that Lowery had him and the teenage girl in her vehicle outside his home. She then allegedly called the teenage girl to get inside the car and instructed her to have sex with the boy as she watched. The teen girl followed the instructions given to her by Lowery. ABC reveals that the victim's mother suspected that there was something shady and inappropriate between Lowery and the teen with the Harris County police telling the mother to monitor her's son phone. 

The mother then found text messages between her son and Lowery that were "sexual in nature". Eventually, the boy admitted that he had intercourse with Lowery. 

We had earlier reported that another teacher Ashlyn Faye Bell, who was previously charged for allegedly having sex with three teenagers, while she served at a school between August 2019 and May 2020, was indicted on Friday, October 9. 

She was charged with two counts of improper relationship between educator and student and one count of sexual assault of a child, according to The Sun. She was arrested on June 24, when one of the students that she allegedly slept with ratted her out. The 24-year-old was working at the library at the Texas High School in Texarkana. 

Bell’s alleged sexual relationships with teenage students came to light after a teacher overheard a group of boys talking about one of them having possibly gotten her pregnant.
