Lynn Burge, a former teacher at Muenster High School accused of having sex with students, could be stepping into the courtroom soon.
According to records at the Cooke County District Clerk’s Office, Burge’s arraignment is set for 1:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1.
Burge, 32, was indicted by a grand jury Friday, Dec. 28, on two counts of improper relationship with a student and one count of online solicitation with a minor, according to a previous interview with 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.
Last week, Burge turned herself in to authorities after her bond was enhanced on the online solicitation charge.
Cooke County Sheriff Terry Gilbert said the court raised the amount of the original bond from $25,000 to $35,000.
When a person is indicted and the court raises the bond, the indictment becomes
an arrest warrant if the person has already been arrested and posted bail, Gilbert said.
Burge was previously booked into the Cooke County Jail facing the same charges she was indicted on stemming from a Texas Rangers investigation.
Her jail time was from Oct. 18 to Oct. 19, according to jail records. Burge’s bonds totaled $125,000.
This time, Burge was booked into jail and released the same day — Friday, Jan. 4. She posted $35,000 bail, says the sheriff.
Authorities believe Burge had intercourse with two of her male students — one described as 16 years old at the time, the other described as an adult.
