FULLERTON (CBSLA.com) — A Brea high school teacher has been accused of having sex with a 17-year-old male student, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office.
Michelle Lynn Johnson, 45, of Anaheim, was charged Tuesday with six felony counts of oral copulation of a minor and three felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse. She’s currently out of custody on $20,000 bail and is expected to be arraigned Wednesday.
