Ex-Westlake teacher's arrest sparks social media firestorm; affidavit released

UPDATE (Video): Since news broke of Haeli Wey’s arrest yesterday, she is being praised on social media, despite the fact that she is facing very serious charges and despite the fact that there are two teen victims whom she allegedly preyed upon. Many, however, are raising the question: if she were a man, would the reaction be the same?

Haeli Noelle Wey, 28, was charged with two counts of improper relationship between an educator and a student. Both charges are second-degree felonies.

10:57 a.m. Travis County Sheriff's Detectives arrested a former Westlake High School teacher on Friday following two alleged "inappropriate relationships" with students at the school.

FOX 7 obtained the Affidavit for warrant of arrest.

Part of the affidavit reads as follows.

The victim said they didn't communicate about school or church but just random things.  Victim reported there were a lot of rumors at school about them "hooking up." Victim said hooking up meant to have sex. Victim said M.s. Wey asked him to help stop the rumors.  The victim reported there were rumors that he and Ms. Wey had met after school Victim also reported that juvenile witness had accessed his Instagram and found communications between him and Ms. Wey confirming that they actually had met after school.  Victim reported that juvenile witness showed the messages to everybody. Tour Affiant then asked the victim about a hike. The victim said he and Ms. Wey had met at Commons Ford at Cuernavaca and went on a hike.  The victim met around 5:00pm and said the hike lasted until approximately 7:00 p.m.  The victim described that they went onto a private trail and said Ms. Wey then took out a hammock.  The victim said they sat on the hammock for a while and then began to kiss.

The TEA told FOX 7 Haeli Wey voluntarily surrendered her teacher certification on Tuesday. Travis County set her bond at $150,000. The Sheriff's Office said she was released tonight on her own personal recognizance, meaning she didn't have to put up any money, but she will have to if she violates any of the terms set for her.
