HEMET (CBS) — Deputies arrested a female Hemet High School teacher Thursday and accused her of having sex with a male student on campus, a sheriff’s department spokesman said.
Hemet school district officials notified the sheriff’s department on Wednesday that a teacher may have been involved in a sexual relationship with a student at the school in December, according to sheriff’s Sgt. Wally Clear.
As a result of an investigation, deputies arrested Janel Ramirez, 31, on suspicion of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, Clear said.
District records showed that Ramirez graduated from Hemet High School in 1999 and has been an English teacher with the district since 2007.
