FULLERTON, Calif. (KTLA) — A high school math teacher was expected to be arraigned Wednesday after being accused of sexually assaulting one of her former students, a 17-year-old boy.
Michelle Lynn Johnson, 45, met the boy at Brea Olinda High School and allegedly engaged in a sexual relationship with him between April and June 2013, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
The student’s parents contacted police after becoming suspicious of the relationship between Johnson and their son.
Johnson was arrested at her home in Anaheim on June 12. She has since been placed on leave from the school.
She was charged Tuesday with six felony counts of oral copulation of a minor and three felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, prosecutors said. She faces a maximum sentence of eight years and four months in prison if convicted.
She was free on $20,000 bail Wednesday.
Anyone with information regarding the alleged assault was asked to contact Supervising Dist. Atty. Investigator Paul Carvo at (714) 347-8794 or Brea Police Det. Debbie Stark at (714) 990-7638.
