Texas teacher arrested for s3xual encounters with students
A Texas teacher who is being accused of having s3xual encounters with two of her students allegedly began engaging in a relationship with one of the boys while the two were away in Africa.
Haeli Wey, 28, a former math teacher at at Westlake High School in Austin met the first boy at a student ministry program in June of this year, and later that summer accompanied him and his family to Africa on a ministry trip.
While on that trip she and the student, 17, had s3x approximately ten times according to an affidavit acquired by 48 Hours’ Crimesider.
The two then had a months-long relationship that ended when the student learned that Wey and another student, also 17, had been out together on a hike this fall.
The first student eventually told his parents about his alleged relationship with Wey, while the second student said they engaged in ‘s3xual contact’ while out on their hike.
That second victim also allegedly said when asked if he expected to have s3x with Wey during their hike that, yes he thought they would be intimate, adding “a teacher just doesn’t hang out with a student to hang out.”
A detective claimed in his report that the second victim denied the pair had hooked up for some time, despite mounting rumors about an alleged encounter.
Wey also allegedly asked the second victim to delete conversations and texts the two had shared with one another.
She was arrested last week and is out on bond – and is expected to appear again in court on January 6, facing charges of two counts of felony improper relationship between educator and student.
Despite the fact that 17 is the legal age of consent in Texas, it is illegal for a teacher to have s3xual contact with a student.
Wey was fired from her job in late October. According to the Eanes Independent School District, which runs nine Texan schools including Westlake High, Wey passed background checks before being hired.
