CONROE, Texas – A Conroe Independent School District high school science teacher has been arrested and charged for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a student, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
Bonnie Guess Mazock, 36, was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with indecency with a child.
On Jan. 12, detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into allegations of an inappropriate relationship between Mazock and one of her students.
According to court documents, the child’s grandmother alerted authorities that her grandson had been having sexual relations with his science teacher, Mazock.
Court documents stated that the student originally confessed to his cousin that he had been having sex with his science teacher, and during winter break, he spent the night at Mazock’s home.
Officials said the student also told investigators he had sex with Mazock multiple times, including inside of her vehicle and at his home. He also stated that Mazock said, “her husband was not satisfying her at home so he had to satisfy her,” according to court documents.
Mazock and the student communicated through the social media app Snapchat, according to court documents. Authorities said they found multiple messages between the teacher and the student, some talking about “meeting up” and “buying drugs.” Court documents also stated the student said Mazock sent him a picture on Snapchat while she was in her bathroom wearing only her bra and panties.
According to authorities, the teen said Mazock often gave him money so he could buy both of them drugs.
“You send your kids to the school, you trust the teachers to not have relationships with them,” said parent, Rania Broussard.
Broussard said she had two children graduate from Oak Ridge and said the district and administrators should enact policies and procedures to better protect students.
“Vet the teachers (and have) counselors talk to the students,” she continued.
Oak Ridge High School Principal AJ LiVecchi sent a letter to parents and guardians about the matter.
“Over the next few days, you will likely see and hear news reports regarding our school. I wanted you to hear directly from me accurate information about what has happened,” the letter read. “I want to assure you that Oak Ridge High School and Conroe ISD are committed to providing a safe learning environment for your children.”
Also in the letter, LiVecchi confirmed that Mazock, who was hired at the high school on Aug. 3, 2021, has been placed on administrative leave.
