A teacher was arrested, charged and convicted of having an inappropriate relationship with a student after she gave her student a lap dance as a birthday gift, prosecutors in Texas said.

Now, a court in Houston, has sentenced her to three years probation as part of a plea bargain agreement with prosecutors.

According to police, 42-year-old Felicia Smith, said that her students persuaded her to perform the lap dance. The lap dance took place in front of a room full of students.

The lap dance lasted nearly four minutes, while music was playing and a student recorded the act with a smart phone. When it was over, the teacher told the student “I love you.”

The incident occurred at the Stovall Middle School. Smith no longer works at the school.
