Dallas, Texas. A 27 year-old teacher has been arrested by local police after it was found out that she has been conducting ‘an affair’ with a student. But that student was just FOURTEEN years old at the time. So let’s call it what it is – child abuse.
But that’s just the start of the story. Thao ‘Sandy’ Doan taught 8th grade math, as well as track and cross country at Raul Quintanilla Senior Middle School in West Oak Cliff until recently. The craziest thing about all of this? The kid BLACKMAILED Doan. To the tune of $28,000!
“At times, he started getting into drugs, drinking, leaving the house. And he would probably get money and just leave the whole weekend,” the child’s mother Nidia said. “I wouldn’t hear from him. I’d be out looking for him.”
‘This is very hurtful, because he’s a victim here. He was a child, he still is a child, but it hurts me because I’ve been through a lot with him. This really changed my son. This turned him into a person that he wasn’t.’
The game was up when the unnamed child – now fifteen – left his cellphone lying around after behaving suspiciously. Nidia read one that said: ‘Aint b’sing watch ima start getting the pics and everything ready to show the cops. Right i aint playing.’ She knew something was up.
A further search of his phone yielded images that led Nidia to the full horrifying truth.
The adolescent is currently in a juvenile detention center for robbery and burglary charges that are unrelated.
Doan now faces a felony charge of what police are calling ‘conducting an improper relationship between a teacher with student’.
