The 48-year-old Kristina Lynn Moore (mugshot photo above) is a teacher at Thornton Middle School in the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District in Harris County, Texas. She is a resident of Katy, Texas.

According to the Houston Chronicle, quoting from the Harris County District Attorney’s office’s complaint, Moore is alleged to have had an inappropriate relationship with a victim who is one of her former students at Thornton Middle School, and who is now in high school.

Originally a teacher observed and reported to the school principal the alleged “suspicious behavior” of Moore and the former student. An examination of surveillance video confirmed what the teacher had observed. The principal then contacted the high school principal where the student is currently enrolled. The school administrators decided to have the student and teacher interviewed separately and simultaneously so as to keep them from being able to notify each other.

The alleged victim told police that he had been a student at the middle school last February when the sexual relationship with Moore began and that he was 14 at that time. He alleged that it began when he asked Moore for her phone number, and that soon thereafter they started texting and eventually arranged to get together. According to boy, the first sexual encounter took place on February 5, 2013 and Moore had called in sick that day. The report goes on to note that school records confirmed she called in sick.

The teen further alleged that the relationship continued for more than a year, continuing after he had graduated from middle school and had gone on to attend high school. He said that they continued to get together for sex in a variety of locals which included Moore’s residence, his residence, a road near an elementary school as well as at Thornton Middle School.

The complaint further notes that the alleged victim was able to give a detailed description of the interior of Kristina Moore’s house. He also gave police a Valentine’s Day card that she had given him.

Kristina Moore was arrested by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and booked into jail and charged with sexual assault of a minor.
