The middle school has fired its acting teacher after she allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old student in her car multiple times.

Brittany Lopez-Murray, 31, who works at Hialeah Middle, reportedly slept with the male student for two months after she confessed her “feelings toward” him over the phone in August.

As reported by local media, the teacher was exposed after the student’s sister-in-law discovered explicit texts and photos between him and the teacher.

She was arrested on Saturday, October 2, and later charged with lewd and lascivious battery, molestation, and engaging in a sexual act with a child, reports the Miami Herald.

It was also reported that the boy’s father came across nude photos of the teacher who works at Hialeah Middle on his son’s phone.

According to the report,

Lopez-Murray and the boy, who is now in high school, exchanged texts describing “how much they enjoyed sex together”

It is alleged that she would sometimes pick him up from basketball practice and then the two would engage in sexual acts in her car.

The accused teacher has taught students at the school for four years and was hailed “rookie teacher of the year” in 2017.

Her lawyers, Landon Ray and Jeff Chukwuma hadn’t seen her arrest report as of Monday night, October 4.

Landon Ray said:

“She is presumed innocent until proven guilty. We hope everyone is patient, doesn’t rush to judgment, and respects the family’s privacy.”

The Miami-Dade school district issued a statement in the Miami Herald, which said that they were “saddened and disappointed” over the allegations.

The statement read:

“All employees receive training and are expected to abide by the District’s Standards of Ethical Conduct policy.

“It is unfortunate that despite our efforts, the actions of some individuals run contrary to the behavior that is expected of them.

“As a result of this arrest, M-DCPS will begin the process of terminating her employment and prevent her from seeking future work with this District.”
