Another Female Teacher from Texas Arrested for Sex with Student

Lisa Harroff, 49-year-old teacher and coach at KETK Neches Junior High, Anderson County, Texas, has been  arrested  and charged with improper relations between an educator and student.

Harroff, a middle school math teacher and cross country coach at Neches Independent School District, was arrested on Thursday last week after turning herself in. She is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a male student on the high school's cross country team. Authorities believe the alleged activities happened over an extended period of time, mostly at Harroff's residence in Palestine, ending last week after the teenager reported it.

"I'm not clear why he came forward to his guardians, but he was forthcoming with us in the investigation," Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor said. Authorities executed a search warrant on Harroff's home Friday and took physical evidence in connection with this case.  Harroff declined to talk with investigators when she turned herself in, saying she had a lawyer.

According to the district officials Harroff had been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the sheriff's office investigation. She has been with Neches ISD for five years and a certified teacher in Texas since 1985.

The charge of improper relationship between a teacher and student is a felony, and carries a possible punishment of up to twenty years in prison.

Harroff was booked into the Anderson County Jail on Thursday and a bond was set at $25,000. She bonded out of jail later that day.
