HOUSTON – A former Eastwood Academy has been sentenced to 6 years deferred adjudication after he pleaded guilty to having an improper relationship with a student.
The sexual relationship between 32-year-old Jameson Matthew Norman and a 17-year-old student came to light after rumors began circulating at the charter school located in the 1300 block of Dumble Street, according to a police affidavit.
A counselor at the school spoke to the victim and the teen denied having a relationship with Norman. However, two weeks after the student’s denial, Norman told a fellow teacher that he had sex with the victim, the affidavit stated. The co-worker reported the confession to the principal, who notified police.
Norman later admitted to the principal that he had touched and kissed the 17-year-old victim and he resigned his position as teacher, the affidavit stated.
