Female teachers commandeering sex with their younger male students, a scenario often highlighted in pop culture and what some might call a dream come true, is actually a crime, and one that is becoming more and more prevalent.
Michelle Yeh, a former substitute teacher at San Pedro High School in the Los Angeles area, is allegedly among this more and more commonly recognized breed of female teachers seeking sex with their younger male students. Yeh taking her pursuit of male student sexual favors to a new level by purportedly using gifts, and even a trip to Disneyland, as incentives to close her sex-with-students deals.
Prosecutors believe former substitute high school teacher, Yeh, engaged in sexual intercourse with at least two underage boys, using a trip to Disneyland – the world famous home of Mickey Mouse, Tinkerbell, and the Matterhorn – to further seduce one of the young male students into having sex with her, reports the New York Daily News.
Yeh, 28, who taught science at San Pedro High School, was originally arrested July 17 for these alleged student-teacher sex encounters that included the Disneyland trip, but now the former teacher faces additional charges of molesting two other male minors as well.
According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, Yeh was charged Wednesday with 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 lewd acts on a child 15 years of age.
All the charges related to sex with the minor boy students are felonies, with Yeh also facing three misdemeanor counts of “child molesting or sexual annoyance involving two additional male victims.”
Along with luring one of her male students for sex with the Disneyland trip, Yeh also hooked up with another of her boy students at a hotel and bought some of her other boy students gifts in an effort to carry her standard teacher-student relationships over to sex-with-teacher relationships, according to prosecutors.
If convicted of the felony and misdemeanor charges, the former substitute science teacher, Yeh, will be loolking at up to nine years, eight months of time in state prison.
Yeh also conducted online tutoring with an additional number of unknown students, leading police to the notion that there may likely be other student sex victims, reports KTLA.
These possible additional student-teacher sex victims may lead to additional charges for Yeh as her case remains open and will be under ongoing investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
