Burk Woman Accused In Student Sex Scandal

A woman originally from Burkburnett is accused of having an affair with a Fort Worth High School student.

Police said Rachelle Nicole Heenan, 34, was booked into the Fort Worth jail on July 5th on charges of an improper relationship with a student. She was released after posting her $10,000 bond.

The wife and mother of two was the forensic science teacher at the Hollenstein Career and Technology Center in Fort Worth. She moved to Fort Worth in 2003.

School resource officers began investigating after hearing rumors around the school that Heenan was sleeping with a 17-year-old teen in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District.

Police believe the two may have had their affair in a hotel room and in the parking lot of a private gym.

The district placed Heenan on paid administrative leave in May after learning of the allegations. She is cooperating with police in the investigation.

Officials do not believe any other students were involved.
