    KHOU: Pasadena ISD teacher accused of having improper relationships with 4 students (Feb 19 2013)

    One of the alleged victims said he was 14 at the time it happened. "Some stuff happened around the 8th grade. She sent me a couple of text messages, that was about it," he said. Those messages included photos of Simmons’ "private parts," according to the student. "Like wow, what kind of person would send me this?" the student said. "An adult, and I’m a child." The teen said it started when he went to Simmons for tutoring and she exchanged phone numbers with him. "She was inviting me to her house, or trying to take me home different times," he said. The two other charges filed against Simmons—online solicitation of a minor and possession of child pornography—are both third-degree felonies. All four alleged victims are now students at Dobie High School.
