Texas teacher, 24, who had sex repeatedly with her 13-year-old student and got pregnant with his child gets 10 years in jail
Alexandria Vera (pictured right in court and left in a selfie) pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child in November and received the sentence Friday. The former Aldine teacher, who has a six-year-old daughter, had admitted to having a sexual relationship with one of her eight grade students.

Her defense attorney meanwhile called as a witness a therapist, who said Vera had grown up witnessing domestic violence and had a strong need for love, as well as a 'big heart'.
Britain's royal rebel: Society photographer Lord Snowdon, the charming ex-husband of Princess Margaret who captured iconic images of the Queen and Diana, dies peacefully at home aged 86
Society photographer Lord Snowdon, the former husband of Princess Margaret, has died at the age of 86. Born Antony Armstrong-Jones, he photographed some of the most famous faces of the 20th century, from Diana, Princess of Wales to Jack Nicholson and Elizabeth Taylor, in a career that lasted more than six decades. But he will be remembered as the man who married into the royal family, wedding the Queen's sister Princess Margaret in 1960 - a union that ended in divorce 18 years later. A celebrity photographer who rode a motorbike, had divorced parents and was born without a title, Lord Snowdon was dubbed the 'first royal rebel' for his dislike of convention. The first real commoner to wed a king's daughter for 450 years, he is pictured right with Princess Margaret after their engagement in 1960, left on their wedding day, inset left in 1966 on a Royal engagement and inset right last October.
