FOX NEWS -- A schoolteacher has told a court she gave a 15-year-old student a lap dance for his birthday because the rest of her class 'convinced her to do it.' Felicia Smith, who teaches at Stovall Middle School in Houston, Texas, was defending herself against a charge of participating in an improper relationship with a student.
Police confirmed they had obtained a video that showed the 42-year-old teacher putting her head between the pupil's legs while she was on her knees. She also apparently 'grinded' against the teenager's body and he is said to have slapped her rear end during the incident on February 26.
Aldine Independent School District said Smith had been removed from campus during the investigation. "The district takes this allegation seriously and is fully cooperating with prosecutors," they said. "The safety and security of our students will continue to be a top priority in Aldine ISD." On Thursday Smith posted a bond worth $30,000.
