Kahtanna Culp, Texas Teacher, Blackmailed By Student Who Claims They Had Sexual Relationship: Cops

Cops said when this teacher was asked to pay up, she fessed up instead.

The Houston Chronicle reports that former Houston High School teacher Kahtanna Culp, 29, allegedly told the principal at Northbrook High School about her relationship with the student after he tried to blackmail her for money to keep quiet about it. The allegations were first made in December, but the story made headlines this week after she was charged with having an improper relationship with a student on March 19.

"She said she wanted to end it, but the boy did not want to and had threatened to go public with the information unless she paid him money," according to police documents obtained by the Chronicle.

The now 19-year-old said the relationship lasted between March 2012 until November 2012 of his senior year, according to KHOU.

He also said Culp used to have kids as young as 14 come over to her home where she'd supply them with marijuana and alcohol.

The Houston Press reached out to Culp's attorney who said his client denies all the allegations.
