(Newport Beach, California) Earlier this month, Tustin High School trainer Hope Ashley Jacoby, 24, pleaded guilty to four felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and three felony counts of oral copulation of a minor.
The offenses resulted from a year-long sexual relationship with a 16-year-old male student.
Between Jan. 1, 2008, and Dec. 19, 2008, Jacoby had an unlawful sexual relationship with a male student, whom she met while working as an athletic trainer at Tustin High School.Despite objections by the prosecution and, presumably, any interested observer of the case, Judge Gregory Jones reduced all of Jacoby's crimes from felonies to misdemeanors and sentenced her to 240 hours of community service.
The defendant had unlawful sex with the victim in her car and at her San Juan Capistrano home on several occasions when the victim was between 16 and 17 years old.
