(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) - A teacher is accused of forcing her students to support a sex offender.
The Houston Christian School teacher Laura Perry allegedly launched a pen pal program and made 12 of her fourth grade students write to convicted sex offender Ricky Rae Rowlett because she is family friends with the child molester.
Perry was fired and the principal was put on paid leave while a civil law suit has been placed against the school.
Police are still checking that all the letters have been recovered, but according to My Fox Houston, they fear that the letters may have been shared with other inmates charged with sex crimes.
One mother pulled her children from the school and put them in counseling.
