BEDFORD, Texas -- (KDAF) -- A now-former HEB school counselor has been arrested after a student’s mother caught the woman in bed with her teenage son, police say.
Shannon Hathaway, 33, was a counselor at Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD’s Harwood Junior High School. She was booked into the Tarrant County Jail on Thursday, accused of improper relationship between educator and student.
Bedford police issued a warrant Wednesday for Hathaway’s arrest for an alleged sexual relationship with a ninth-grade student. Police say the 17-year-old student’s mother walked in on her son and Hathaway naked in bed together.
Hathaway reportedly resigned from the school district before surrendering herself to authorities. She had been with HEB ISD since 2012 and was placed on administrative leave in May, after the school district was notified of a police investigation.
