Texas teacher sentenced for sex abuse of child

Tyler Childw-Edd was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison for sexually abusing a 15-year-old student and the two of them shared a bed, according to the Associated Press.

He also faces a mandatory minimum of four years in state prison for a second charge of sexual abuse of a child, which carries a mandatory term of five years in the state’s sex offender registry.

Childw, who taught at Westside High School in Houston, was also ordered to pay $15,000 in restitution to the victim, the AP reported.

The judge in the case was not available for comment.

The victim, who was not identified, was 13 at the time, and was at the school with a group of friends.

The school’s principal called Childw after the abuse occurred to say he was aware of the abuse and had to report it to police, according the AP.

He allegedly said the victim was “in the wrong place at the wrong time,” according to a police report.

Child w-erd was arrested last August and charged with sexually abusing the student, the Associated Journal reported.

A school spokesman told the AP that Childw is a former Westside student who graduated in 2008.

The AP reported that Child werd is the father of the victim’s younger sister.

A judge on Friday imposed the mandatory minimum sentence, saying Childw’s victim “is not a child” and that he “will be the victim of this heinous crime for life.”

He will be sentenced on June 2, 2018.
