At one point during the relationship, Vera was pregnant with the student’s child, but later terminated the pregnancy. Vera claimed the boy’s parents condoned the relationship.

The former teacher had already been found to have violated the conditions of her $100,000 bond, which required her to stay away from the student.

Vera could be released from prison in as early as five years with good behavior.
