Michelle Schiffer, the Texas history teacher accused of having sex and smoking marijuana with a 15-year-old student, faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty earlier this week.

On Monday, the 23-year-old former teacher who at Cypress Springs High School, pleaded guilty to participating in an improper relationship with the former student, admitting she had sex with him at least two times last summer.

“Michelle has taken responsibility and is very remorseful,” attorney Grant Scheiner told the Houston Chronicle. “At sentencing, Michelle plans to apologize to the complainant and his family, as well as everyone affected. It’s doubtful she will have trouble with the law again.”

Schiffer was taken into custody in November after she met up with the student in July at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Cypress before going to a friend’s apartment to have sex. An anonymous student reported the relationship to the school’s principal.

During their second encounter, Schiffer picked up the teen in a park before they smoked pot. They then pulled over to have sex.

School officials said Michelle Schiffer was removed from the school’s campus and was placed on administrative leave after she was charged with an improper relationship between teacher and student, along with sexual assault of a child.

“We will continue to protect students and not tolerate relationships of an inappropriate nature,” school officials announced in a statement in November.
