Rebecca Delagarza: Teacher Had Sex, Massive Text Exchanges with 14-Year-Old Female Student
For eight months beginning last fall, Rebecca Rose Delagarza, 26, Pasadena middle-school coach, had numerous sexual encounters in her office or a locker-room storage room with a 14-year-old female student, court documents allege.
Delagarza appeared in court today, KTRK reports, on two counts of sexual assault of a child and two counts of improper relationship with a student.
The court documents outline near-weekly encounters involving, as the legal language puts it, "oral sex on each other and digital penetration of their female organs."
Not to mention 22,400 text messages and 3,800 phone calls over the eight months, "at all hours of the day and night, even during school hours," court documents say.

Other coaches at Thompson Intermediate told investigators that Delagarza and the girl were often seen together and spent time alone in the office and elsewhere, court documents say.
Security cams show the two being together, for instance, for four hours this past June, one of those hours alone together.
Delagarza has been on administrative leave from the Pasadena district since the summer, KTRK says.
