Former Los Angeles substitute teacher, 28, had sex with underage boys
This case is from August 18, 2015
A former Los Angeles substitute high school teacher had sex with two underage boys and took one teen to Disneyland to reel him in, prosecutors said Tuesday.
Michelle Yeh, 28, was arrested July 17 on suspicion that she sexually abused one 15-year-old student at San Pedro High School, where she taught science this past year.
But prosecutors now allege that she had unlawful sex with two male minors and molested two other boys, according to the L.A. County District Attorney’s office.
The former teacher took one boy on the Disneyland trip, met another at a hotel and bought several boys gifts in order to pursue relationships with them, prosecutors said.
Authorities charged Yeh on Tuesday with unlawful sex with two minors. She faces four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor under 16, two counts of oral copulation of a minor under 16, and two counts of a lewd act on a child 15 years of age in the alleged targeting of the two victims.
She’s also charged with three misdemeanor counts of child molesting or sexual annoyance against two other alleged victims, both males, KTLA-TV reported.
Prosecutors will ask the judge to set a $250,000 bail at Yeh’s arraignment on Wednesday, according to the DA’s office. If she’s convicted, she’ll face a maximum of nine years and eight months in prison.
