Beauty Queen Teacher Arrested for Sex with Student

(Carrolton, Texas) A 25-year-old Spanish teacher at Hebron High School, Amy McElhenney, was arrested last week and charged with having an improper relationship with an 18-year-old student, a second-degree felony. McElhenney is a former Miss Bexar County and a former contestant in the Miss Texas Beauty Pageant.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, another student sent an anonymous note last month to Hebron's resource police officer that indicated Ms. McElhenney's cellphone contained "intimate" text messages to and from the 18-year-old. When police interviewed Ms. McElhenney at the school she allowed them to view her cellphone.

"Messages that were on there led us to believe there was a little bit more going on between the teacher and this student," said Carrollton police Sgt. David Sponhour.
And it was confirmed. When investigators questioned the student, he spilled his guts and provided a written statement attesting to having sex with McElhenney on "numerous occasions" at her apartment.

After her arrest on May 25, McElhenney posted $5,000 bond and was released. She has resigned her teaching position.
