A Texas teacher and mother-of-two is facing 21 charges after she confessed to having sex with four students.

On Thursday, 38-year-old Heather Lee Robertson was indicted on six charges of having an improper relationship between teacher and student, along with 15 sexual assault charges.

Robertson was arrested in April and was charged with four counts of having sex with the students. It is also alleged that she had a threesome with two of the high school students.

Robertson was initially facing 20 years behind bars for the inappropriate relationships but the sexual assault charges may have added 20 additional years to her sentence, The Lufkin News reported

The court also had a hearing on May 1st for an unrelated DWI charge stemming from March in which she pleaded not guilty.

An arrest warrant indicated that the probe into the Hudson Independent School District teacher was launched on April 20th after police received a tip about Robertson’s involvement with her students.

One teen told investigators that he and Robertson, who was formerly a kindergarten teacher, began talking and exchanging sexually charged messages on Snapchat. Sometime after spring break, she invited him to come over to have sex.

The boy asked whether he could along a friend, and Roberson said yes.

When the two teens got to the woman’s apartment, they discovered her lying on the couch.

After a few minutes of conversing, Robertson invited her her guests into her room, where she got naked before having a threesome with the high schoolers.

Two other students later confessed to meeting Robertson for sex on multiple instances, which brings the number of victims to four.

One of the boys described for authorities how he would sneak out of his house and Robertson would take him to her apartment.

When detectives approached the teacher, who has two daughters, Robertson confessed to the accusations, admitted that she had sex with one of the teens four times between 2016 and April 2017.

Robertson said she recently started to drink heavily and would sometimes forget aspects of her sexual trysts. She also indicated that she did not make the teens wear condoms because she can’t get pregnant.

The teacher said she told her underage lovers to keep quiet about their relationships.

Hudson ISD Superintendent Mary Ann Whiteker said in a statement that Robertson quit just after the accusations came to light.

She had been working with the district since 2000 and spent the first 13 years of her career at Burley Primary in Lufkin.

Robertson was pulled over by authorities and was arrested on charges of having an improper relationship.

Robertson remains in the Angelina County Jail on a $200,000 bond.
