SANTA ANA (AP) — A former Orange County high school band director has been sentenced to 16 months in prison for having sex with a 15-year-old student.
Thirty-one-year-old Carlie Rose Attebury also was ordered Friday to register as a sex offender and was told she can’t have any contact with the boy.
Prosecutors say Attebury had a year-long affair with the boy while working at El Modena High School in Orange in 2007.
According to the Orange County Register, prosecutors said Attebury worked for months to attract the boy, sent him nearly 10,000 text messages and had sex with him at her home when he began mowing her lawn.
Attebury denied the allegations but acknowledged having sex with two former students after they turned 18.
