The Odessa teacher, accused of having sex with a student, bonded out of jail for the second time.

45-year-old Bryan Berta was arrested Monday on charges of sexual assault and bailed out that night.

Then he was re-arrested on Wednesday for having an improper relationship with a student.

He managed to cough up enough cash to bond out again for a second time.

Berta resigned from his job this week.

He taught world geography at Bonham Junior High.

According to the arrest affidavit, Berta had sex with the student several times at her home while her parents were out of town and in a classroom.
