Major Drama Involving Houston Teacher

A Houston-area drama teacher is facing charges, accused of having sex with a teenager that he eventually married in Las Vegas.

 

 

According to our TV partner Local-2, the investigation started with an April traffic stop, where 41-year old Ilich Auyapah Guardiola was found with a 16-year old girl. He was a drama teacher working at several Houston-area acting academies.  The girl was one of his students at the Houston Family Arts Center.  The teen told police her teacher was giving her a ride home.

 

 

She later admitted to authorities the two had a sexual relationship.

 

 

Guardiola was arrested this week at his northwest Harris County apartment.  He’s charged with sexual assault of a child and is being held on $50,000 bond.

 

 

Investigators say Guardiola and his alleged victim traveled to Las Vegas two weeks ago and were married with the girl's mother present.

 

 

The Houston Family Arts Center released a statement saying they immediately severed all ties with Guardiola as soon as they learned of the investigation.
