A Texas schoolteacher, accused of inappropriately touching her student, allegedly told Texas police she’s too prejudiced to touch a black student.
Irene Esther Stokes, 61, from Montgomery, reportedly told investigators that she did not touch the first grade student, and she “doesn’t like to touch the black students because she [is] prejudiced,” according to the criminal complaint from Harris County district attorney’s office.
Stokes, a first grade teacher at Northwest Preparatory Academy Charter School, in Humble, faces a felony charge of indecency with a child.
She could serve up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 if guilty, Sara Marie Kinney, Harris County DA’s office spokesperson, told ABCNews.com.
