Police: Teacher Promised 16-year-Old Student Good Grades For Secret Sex

A Texas high school teacher offered to give his 16-year-old student good grades for keeping their sexual relations a secret.

James Quigley was 34 and married when he was working as an English teacher at Richardson High School near Dallas. He was arrested last week after it was discovered he had a thing for a 16-year-old girl.

Media reports said that 34-year-old James Quigley began harassing the 16-year-old Richardson High School student in March with a barrage of texts and emails. The girl told police in Richardson, Texas that she had sex with the English teacher twice at her home, mostly because he didn’t want his wifewho also teaches at the schoolto find out.

Emails and texts turned into sex at the girl’s home at least twice, according to an affidavit, with Quigley telling her repeatedly that she had “a pretty neck.”

The student started getting creeped out when the teacher pumped things up a notch, showing up at her home one day and telling her he had “a hotdog for her dog.”

James Quigley, who has taught at the school for five years, was placed on administrative leave following his arrest.
