TOMBALL, Texas – A former Tomball Independent School District teacher accused of sexually assaulting a former student in 2021 was sentenced on Tuesday.

Marka Bodine took a plea deal and was sentenced to10 years probation, deferred adjudication. She must also serve 60 days in jail, but not immediately because she recently had a baby. That baby is not the child of her victim, authorities said.

According to court documents, the inappropriate relationship came to light last year after Bodine notified the school principal at Tomball Intermediate School that she was being harassed by a former student. Bodine told the principal that the 16-year-old boy was making threats to hurt himself and had gotten access to her private photographs and manipulated images of her.

Investigators said a search of both Bodine’s phone and the boy’s phone showed several messages and images that were exchanged between them. Some of the images were sexually explicit in nature.

When questioned, the boy told investigators that Bodine befriended him by playing an online video game and later began texting him, according to the affidavit. He said the two began exchanging explicit images and had sex shortly after he turned 13. Their relationship continued for the next three years.
