Charges have been dropped against a Texas drama teacher after he turned to the Bible for guidance — and married his student. While there is no confirmation that he paid her father fifty shekels of silver, 41-year-old llich Guardiola, took Deuteronomy 22:29 otherwise to heart.
As the Bible commands, Guardiola married the 16-year-old Houston Family Arts Center student he was busted getting to know “Biblically.” An investigation into the teacher was launched after he was stopped for a traffic violation with the teen girl in his car.
The two initially told police that she was one of his students, and that he was just giving her a ride home.
The young student eventually confessed to police that the two were in a relationship, and in love.Text messages between Guardiola and the girl confirmed that the nature of their relationship was sexual. “I love having sex with you,” one text from the girl to her teacher read.
However, in a disgusting plot twist, by the time police had gone to arrest the teacher, he flew his victim to Las Vegas and married her — after obtaining her mother’s permission. The girl’s mother served as a witness to the rushed wedding.
Guardiola has been cleared of charges of sexually assaulting a child — a development his lawyer says occurred because of the wedding. Additionally, both the mother and daughter refused to cooperate with police.
Guardiola was, however, fired from the center. “We were informed by local law enforcement that one of our independent contract teachers was under investigation for possible criminal activity,” said Bob Clark, executive director of the Houston Family Arts Center. “When we learned of the investigation we took what we believed was the best possible action, which was too immediately sever all our ties with this contractor. Our priority will always be with our students and our organization.”
Even if they hurriedly married to escape charges, and somehow got the mother to acquiesce to this sick and delusional game, the two were not married when what anyone aside from the girl’s mother would say she was being sexually assaulted. That charges against this man would be dropped is sickening.
