A Michigan teacher admitted to having sex with two students and giving one of them Xanax

Rochester, MI – A special education teacher admitted to having sex with two students and giving one of the students Xanax.

Kathryn Houghtaling pleaded no contest to sex and drug charges, according to People.

She had been out after being released on a $200,000 cash bond, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Houghtaling, who is married, was arrested in January of 2019 after she had sex with a student in a car as other students watched, according to People.

The Detroit News reported that a parent of a student saw a video of the teacher partying with students. There was alcohol and marijuana involved.

A student also came forward with information about the party and told school administrators, according to the Detroit Free Press.

When police talked to the teacher, she admitted to having sex with two students who were 16 and 17, according to the Detroit News.

The school district immediately fired Houghtaling, according to the Detroit Free Press.

At the time, Houghtaling was a special education teacher working in her first year at Rochester High School.

"The allegations are serious; they involve students. One was being taught by Ms. Houghtaling -- that's the allegation. They involve various sex acts in more than one locations on more than one date through at least two months in the last year," said Judge Lisa Asadoorian in January of 2019, according to WWJ. "The court's very concerned about the teacher-student relationship that's alleged to have been involved in these allegations."

Police said that the investigation discovered that Houghtaling had made friends with the students. She then drank alcohol and smoked marijuana with them after school, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Houghtaling pleaded guilty to six counts of third-degree sexual conduct and one count of delivery of a controlled substance to a minor, according to People.

Her sentencing is scheduled for March 3.

I see no reason why this woman shouldn’t be led to the town square and stoned to death to serve as an example to other child predators of the form of punishment that awaits them

They have to figure out a way to eliminate teachers like this one from all schools. Jail time has to be lengthy to start off with. I don't know what kind of background checks are done before hiring them but whatever they do should include a phycological and polygraph. It's absolutely crazy how often this occurs.

All new teachers should start in kindergarten or grades 1 to 4 for at least the first 5 to 10 years of employment. Some of these teachers are only a few years older than the students.

This epidemic of female pedophiles assaulting students has gone on for way too long. What is wrong with these entitled freaks of nature? Long jail terms are required!

What the hell! This psycho not only gave the victims alcohol and drugs, but allowed other students to watch and video the sexual abuse? And it is abuse. They are minors and she is the adult. Throw the book at her.

This epidemic of female pedophiles is extremely puzzling to me; any one have theories or actual answers as to why this is happening more and more frequently?

I have a theory. Got it from a previous article here. These women are watching fantasy porn and making it real. Men know better and how they will be treated in prison if caught. Nothing stopping these women. I have a feeling it's going on a LOT.
