Jurors in the trial of a teacher accused of molesting a student heard from the victim Thursday.
She took the stand and said they first had sex when she was 13 years old.
But she said Schrader Elementary teacher Michael Lander had his eyes on her long before that.
She said she was only 12 years old when Lander, a 5th grade teacher, singled her out for extra attention.
They first had sex on her 13th birthday, she testified. They went on to have sex on other occasions at school, in his car and at his home, where she lived with him and his family for a brief time.
Investigators questioned her in 2008, and she denied anything had happened.
Two years later, she says she spoke up after her family found inappropriate emails between her and Lander.
"I grew up and I realized how sick and wrong it was," she said. "It's disgusting."
FOX 13's Deborah Bowden will have more at 5 & 6.
