Ex-Rochester teacher charged with sex with students held on $200K bond

The former Rochester High School teacher who was charged Thursday with sexual assault for having sex with at least two different teenage boys has been ordered held on a $200,000 cash bond.

Kathryn Houghtaling, 26, of Sterling Heights was arraigned on six counts of second degree criminal sexual conduct. The special education teacher is charged with having sex with two boys, ages 16 and 17.

Houghtaling was charged Thursday but wasn't arraigned until Friday morning when she was ordered held on a $200,000 bond/no 10%. That means she must meet the cash bond requirements to be released. She was unable to do so and is currently in an Oakland County cell.

Judge Lisa Asadoorian said she set the bond high because of the seriousness of the crimes. 

According to sources, Houghtaling engaged in sexual acts with teens after school in a car off campus. She also allegedly had sex with students inside an apartment.

According to a source in the school district, Houghtaling would call kids out of class to spend time with them in her office - many of which were boys. The source said she's been warned in the past to stop being so close to students.

If Houghtaling is able to make bond, she's not to have any contact with the teens and is not allowed to drink or use drugs.
