Video: High School Teacher Tonya Flink Accused of Having Sex with Four Students

Former high school teacher Tonya Flink is accused of having sex with four of her students during the 2010-11 school year (video below).

Flink taught computer technology at Haltom High in Haltom City, Texas. She was indicted on a charge of an improper relationship between an educator and a student last month, reports the Star Telegram.

Flink, a mother of three, began working as the computer teacher at Haltom High in August of 2007. She began having relationships with male students before December of 2010, and continued with at least one of them for several months.

One student told authorities that he regretted his involvement with Flink, while the other students refused to cooperate with police.

The student told police that the relationship with the 39-year-old Flink included sexual encounters where they did "everything you could imagine," a police affidavit stated.

Flink allegedly told the student that she liked "young Hispanic kids" and had fallen in love with him.

In 2011, Flink divorced her husband and the student moved into her apartment in Bedford, Texas after graduating.

The student's parents contacted Haltom City police in September of 2011 after he confessed to having sex and living with Flink.

Flink resigned from her position at Haltom High in August of 2011, shortly before police launched an investigation.

Flink was then hired at Carter Riverside High in Fort Worth, Texas as a health science teacher, but was suspended when parents from Haltom High contacted school officials.

She is currently free on $10,000 bond while expected to appear in court next week.
