Former GHS teacher accused of improper relationship gets deferred adjudication

Wendallyn (Wendy) Dyan King, a former Granbury High School teacher, on Tuesday before Judge Ralph Walton in 355th Judicial District Court received seven years of deferred adjudication in a plea agreement for a guilty plea on her second-degree felony charge of improper relationship between an educator and a student. King was arrested on a Granbury Police Department warrant on June 6, at age 46, in connection with sending electronic messages containing “sexually explicit material” to a 16-year-old male student in August 2011, according to a probable cause affidavit. Without the plea deal, the range of punishment could have been between 2 and 20 years in prison, plus a fine of up to $10,000. Walton told King she must pay restitution and provisions of her supervision in the amount of $110 every month, permanently surrender her Texas Educator’s Permit and attend Christian-based counseling once a month. If she satisfactorily completes the terms for the full seven years of deferred adjudication, her charge will be dismissed, Walton said.
