FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A Fresno high school teacher is facing possible jail time after pleading guilty to having sex with an underage student.
The Fresno Bee reports that 30-year-old Megan Denman - a social studies teacher at Hoover High School - entered the plea on Wednesday to three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and three counts of oral copulation with a minor. The charges stemmed from a sexual relationship between Denman and a boy that allegedly began in the summer of 2011 when he was 17.
Authorities say Denman was arrested in April after the teen was pulled over driving her Saturn. According to court documents, he showed investigators text messages from Denham that read "I love you" and "I miss you" and told them about the relationship.
