Former Teacher Accused of Sex Acts with Fifth Graders

By  | 

Harris County prosecutors say a former fifth-grade teacher lured five of her male students into sexual acts in her classroom, at her apartment and in a movie theater.

A judge set bail Thursday at 320-thousand dollars for 27-year-old Brandy Lynn Gonzales. She's charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault and two counts of indecency with a child.

Her husband, 31-year-old Johnny Gonzales, is charged with one count aggravated sexual assault and one count of failure to report child sex abuse. He's in jail on 200-thousand dollars bond.

The charges against Brandy Gonzales involve five boys in 2004 at Piney Point elementary, where she was a teacher.

Assistant District Attorney Denise Oncken says the students allege that Gonzales would touch them under desks during class.
