A former Muenster High School teacher accused of having sex with students has surrendered to authorities, Cooke County Sheriff Terry Gilbert says.
Lynn Burge 32, turned herself in Friday, Jan. 4 after warrants were issued for her arrest following grand jury indictments.
Burge was being processed into the county jail as of press time, officials said.
On Friday, Dec. 28, the Saint Jo woman was indicted on two counts of improper relationship with a student and one count of online solicitation with a minor, according to Cooke County District Attorney John Warren.
Improper relationship with a minor is a second-degree felony. Online solicitation with a minor is a third-degree felony.
Burge was previously booked into the Cooke County Jail facing the same charges she was indicted on.
Her jail time was from Oct. 18 to Oct. 19, according to jail records. Burge's bonds totaled $125,000.
Burge's charges stem from an investigation by the Texas Rangers.
On Oct. 8, Texas Ranger Bruce Sherman learned about an ongoing investigation into allegations of potential online solicitation of a minor, sexual assault of a child and improper relationship between educator and student, according to copies of arrest warrants.
Authorities believe Burge had intercourse with two of her students — one described as a 16-year-old male at the time and the other described as an adult male.
Burge taught Intro to Culinary Arts, Child Development and Principles of Human Services at MHS. She was also the FCCLA adviser, according to the Muenster Independent School District’s website.
Her last day with Muenster ISD was Friday, Oct. 12.
