Teacher sentenced to 60 days for sexually abusing girl student

a former texas middle school Teacher, Marca Bodine has been sentenced to 60 days in prison after confessing to sexually abusing a former student for more than three years, People Report.

The 32-year-old is going to jail for two months after pleading guilty to persistent sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14. The abuse began when the teen was 13 years old.

Bodine will also serve 10 years on probation, register as a sex offender, and attend therapy.

The authorities arrested Bodine in April 2021 after students complained of harassing him.

He told the principal that the student had gained access to and manipulated his photographs. The former teacher also said that the student was in danger of harming himself.

The student told officials that the two met through an online game when she became friends with him. Shortly after, the teacher sent candid photos to the students—and they started having sex in 2018 after the age of 13.

The two had sex in her classroom and in her vehicle.

In May, authorities arrested Bodine for his crimes.

Bodine is expected to go to prison in June 2023 because she has just given birth. The student is not the father.

The Harris County prosecutor expressed disappointment at the judge’s decision. Harris County Prosecutor Janna Oswald requested 20-40 years in prison.

Oswald told KPRC:

There are certain types of cases that, in my opinion, should really only warrant punishment, and this is the kind of case,” said Oswald, head of the Crime Against Children division. “I am heartbroken for the complainant and his family. I am really disappointed in the outcome as a prosecutor – a child abuse prosecutor, and I am disappointed as a Harris County citizen.
