A woman who was a substitute teacher at San Pedro High School is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on felony sex-related counts involving two teenage boys, both students, and misdemeanor charges involving two others.
Michelle Yeh, 28, is due in a Long Beach courtroom on four felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor under 16 and two felony counts each of oral copulation of a minor under 16 and committing a lewd act on a child 15 years of age.
Yeh is also charged with three misdemeanor counts of child molesting or sexual annoyance involving two other boys, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Yeh, who became a permanent substitute teacher in February, allegedly pursued relationships with several students, buying them gifts, taking one to Disneyland and meeting another at a hotel. She was arrested July 17 and released the next day after a $100,000 bond was posted.
Yeh began teaching in the high school’s science department in February and had held a number of temporary teaching assignments in the area and provided online tutoring, police said. She is no longer a teacher, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Yeh faces up to nine years and eight months in state prison if convicted as charged.
