(HOUSTON) -- A judge has allowed a 20-year-old man to see the two daughters that he allegedly fathered with his high school teacher.
Bradman Moore claims he began having sex with Anne Lynn Montgomery when he was a 15-year-old freshman at Sharpstown High School in Houston. Montgomery, then 30 years old, was the school's dance instructor and Moore was on the school's dance team.
Moore said that they started having sex in 2006, and had their first daughter about a year after that. Another daughter soon followed, he said, adding that he transferred to another high school, moved in with Montgomery and helped raise the children.
But Montgomery filed a protective order against Moore on behalf of herself and her children, claiming that Moore physically abused her. The two were in court on Monday.
He has denied the allegations, but the restraining order was granted.
"She wants it to be where there's a restraining order for my children, but I've never hurt my children. I've never harmed my children," Moore told ABC News' Houston affiliate KTRK TV.
"It's an amazing feeling," he said of the judge's decision to allow him to see his daughters. "The children are my only concern, that is my concern, they are my children."
He told KTRK that he came forward with his story out of fear that he wouldn't be able to see his children, but now Houston police are investigating the relationship.
Investigators took DNA samples from Moore and have begun a statutory rape investigation.
Moore said he found out he wasn't the only student to have had a relationship with Montgomery.
"There was a total of 6 students including myself, she had improper relationships with," he said.
When KTRK asked Montgomery whether she had had sex with Moore or other students, one of her attorneys replied that they had no comment.
