LUFKIN, Texas — A former Texas kindergarten teacher is accused of having sex with four high school students, two of them at the same time, according to an arrest warrant released Monday.

Heather Lee Robertson, 38, was arrested Saturday on four counts of an improper relationship, KTRE reports.

On Thursday, police began investigating after receiving information about Robertson and several teenage students.

One student told police that he and Robertson started talking and sexting on Snapchat. Sometime after spring break, she asked him to come to her apartment to have sex, according to police.

That’s when he asked if a friend could join them. Once at the apartment, they talked for a few minutes before Robertson allegedly asked them to have sex with her.

Both students admitted to the incident. In addition, two other students admitted to having a sexual relationship with Robertson on multiple occasions.

In an interview with investigators, Robertson said she didn’t make the boys use protection because she couldn’t have children anymore, according to the warrant.

She also said she wasn’t able to remember details about the encounters because she had recently started drinking heavily, according to the Lufkin Daily News.

“We acted immediately and began our investigation,” Hudson Independent School District superintendent Mary Ann Whiteker said. “We pursued with the correct protocol we have to follow. I accepted the resignation (Thursday) afternoon, and it has been submitted through the appropriate legal channels. Our investigation has been finalized.”

If convicted, Robertson could face up to 20 years in prison, according to police.
