At times it seems like the whole teacher-having-sex-with-student thing is some long played out joke around here. It happens way too often, and now that the summer's almost here and most schools are letting out, we won't hear more about that for a few months at least.

The report, shared on CBS Houston's website, says that a 37-year-old male teacher at a high school in Gray, LA allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old male student during the previous school year.
