LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A former Hudson kindergarten teacher already charged with having sex with four high school students now faces eight new criminal charges, according to Angelina County Jail records.

Heather Lee Robertson, 38, of Lufkin, now faces six charges of second-degree improper relationship between educator and student and six charges of second-degree sexual assault of a child.

Two of the improper relationship and all six sexual assault charges were filed on Thursday.

Each of the six improper relationship charges involves six different victims. Each of the sexual assault charges involve the same victims. Hudson ISD police were able to file the improper relationship charges due to the allegations Robertson had sex with Hudson ISD students. Lufkin police were able to file the sexual assault charges due to the allegations Robertson had sex with underage boys in the city limits of Lufkin.

An arrest affidavit filed Thursday states a student told a Hudson ISD officer he had sex with Robertson on numerous occasions between November and February. He said she would pick him up at his home and they would have sex in her car and at her apartment.

A second affidavit states another student said he had sex with Robertson the day before Thanksgiving. He said Robertson took him home after they had met at her apartment.

A third affidavit states a student convinced his parents on Nov. 25 that Robertson needed help moving in to her apartment and they dropped him off at the apartment. The boy said he then had sex at Robertson's apartment.

A fourth affidavit states a student told police Robertson picked him up from his home on three different occasions and returned him home after they had sex.

Justice of the Peace Donnie Puckett set bond on the two new improper relationship charges at $50,000 each. Justice of the Peace Billy Ball has not set bail on the remaining six charges.

The jail records list offense dates of Nov. 23 and Feb. 1 on the new improper relationship charges. The six sex assault charges list offense dates of Oct. 30, Nov. 20, Nov. 25, March 11, March 11 and March 20.

The first offense date is three days after her husband filed for divorce.

Arrest affidavits from the previous charges state four different students admitted to having sex with Robertson. Two of them said they had sex with her at the same time.

Two of the students said they would sneak out of their houses and Robertson would pick them up and take them back to her apartment to have sex and then take them back home.

Robertson was arrested on the previous four charges on April 22.

Robertson admitted to a Hudson ISD police officer that she had sex with the four students, saying she had recently become a heavy drinker and would sometimes not remember the details of the encounters.

Every sexual encounter was sparked by social media, according to the affidavits.

Below are summaries from each Lufkin PD affidavit:

Cause number F36207 and F36208: Alleges Robertson communicated over social media with one student on March 11, which led her to inviting him and another student over to her apartment so they could have sex.
