Woman accused of sexual involvement with 3 students

On March 3, it was reported that a California woman was accused of sexually exploiting three high school students. The 42-year-old woman was taken into police custody on Feb. 28 and ultimately charged with unlawful sexual intercourse and knowingly dissuading a victim or witness.

According to a Siskiyou County sheriff, the sexual encounters began during the summer when the woman assisted with a high school football team photo session. The woman allegedly began communicating with the victims and began a relationship that became sexual in nature. The three boys and the woman reportedly shared sexual texts and photos, which then began to circulate among other students. A school official reportedly caught wind of the situation and contacted the police.

If a person is convicted on sexual assault or rape charges, it is likely that they will have to register as a sex offender. Not only can registering as a sex offender cause a person to lose their job, but they could also be unable to live where they please or visit certain locations where children frequent. Other consequences could include a lengthy jail sentence and hefty fines.

Because sexual assault charges involving minors have severe consequences, a criminal law attorney may work diligently to create a strong defense for the accused person. Because some evidence often consists of testimony from the alleged victim, the attorney may submit evidence that shows that the accused person could not have been involved in the crime or argue that the evidence does not prove beyond reasonable doubt that a crime was committed.
