HOUSTON, Texas - A former Houston-area teacher has been sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty to having sex with a 15-year-old student she was tutoring.
Kathryn Camille Murray was sentenced in Houston on
Tuesday after pleading guilty last week to two counts of sexual assault
of a child under a plea deal with prosecutors.
State District Judge Frank Price also ordered the 30-year-old former middle school English teacher to serve a year of probation after her release.
Prosecutors say the episode began as the Memorial Middle School teacher was tutoring a Spanish-speaking boy. In February 2012, the boy was found by his younger brother in bed with the teacher while their parents were away from home.
