The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office says Houghtailing admitted to having sex with two students ages 16 and 17 after being confronted about a video showing the teacher “partying” with students. Alcohol and marijuana were involved, according to an Oakland County Sheriff’s deputy.
Only one of the two students was assigned to Houghtailing’s classroom where she teaches special education.
One incident between Houghtailing and a student reportedly took place inside a car with other students present, a police detective told the court, while another was at a student’s home.
