Southeast Texas Teacher Charged with Having Sexual Relationship with Student

By  | 

HOUSTON—A 25-year-old Brazosport ISD teacher found herself out of a job and in jail after she allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with one of her students.

Nikki Scherwitz was charged with sexual assault of a child and improper relationship with a student.

BISD would not give specific details, but did confirm they received a report of misconduct on April 22, 2013 involving Scherwitz in the presence of students at an off-campus, non-school event. Campus officials launched an investigation and said Scherwitz resigned the same day she was approached about the matter, before the investigation was complete.

The case was then handed over to the Freeport Police Department who moved forward with filing charges.

Scherwitz is currently out on a $50,000 bond.
