An investigation was launched last week when another employee noticed
suspicious activity and notified Pearland ISD administrators. The
district said the investigation “revealed inappropriate interaction
between the employee and the student.”
Pearland police said, the driver would cover the
vehicle’s onboard camera but the microphone still picked up evidence
of inappropriate contact. They recorded her saying " Fuck Me, Fuck Me, Harder".
Pearland ISD immediately terminated Almanza prior to her Thursday
afternoon bus route for violations of district policy, unauthorized sex on a bus, as well as sex with a student, officials said.
Neighbors say Almanza tried to have sex with their kids also. Almanza said, the boy is the father of her baby that she is carring.
Almanza put a blanket over her ugly face when she was released from jail after posting bond on Wednesday.
Three male students picked her up. They led her to the back seat of a pickup
truck to have sex, where the windows were covered with trash bags and a sun shade.
