One count of third-degree sodomy and one count of custodial interference

Angela Comer was
a 26-year-old middle school teacher. She was forced to resign from the position in November of 2005 after allegations of an affair between herself and a 14-year-old male eighth grade student arose. In January of 2006, both Comer and the boy went missing, along with Comer's 4-year-old son. They were found two weeks later by Mexican authorities in a hotel in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, near the Texas border. According to authorities, Comer and the boy had planned to marry one another in Texas, but when they were told parental consent was needed, they continued south. After serving nearly 16 months in jail, Comer pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree sodomy and one count of custodial interference, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Shortly before her formal sentencing hearing, Comer abruptly changed her story, saying the the 14-year-old abducted her, held her at gunpoint, and forced her to drive to Mexico. She says the boy also broke a guitar over her head when she attempted to escape. Her sentence was not altered.
