What an unfortunate situation…
On Friday, Thao “Sandy” Doan — a teacher at Raul Quintanilla Sr. Middle School in Dallas, TX — was arrested and charged with sexual assault after she allegedly admitted to having sex with her 14-year-old student.
Prior to her arrest, the boy’s mother found inappropriate texts from the 27-year-old on her son’s phone, as well as “large amounts of money.”
Apparently, the student had blackmailed Doan for $28,000 to keep their affair a secret. As seen in one of the text messages:
“Anit [expletive] watch ima start getting the pics and everything ready… to show the cops right I anit playing.”
Thao told officials she exchanged messages with the boy via Instagram, and that they first had sex in a park circa summer 2015.
According to the student’s mother:
“She did very bad. She did bad and I’m not condoning what he did because I know he was wrong at what he also did because blackmailing is not acceptable.”
In addition to teaching, Doan was also a soccer and cross-country coach for the middle school.
This is a sad situation for all parties involved.
