Felony charges were filed Monday against a 32-year- old female teacher at an East Los Angeles high school who’s accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old student.
Gina Murry, who taught at Esteban E. Torres High School, is facing six counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and four counts each of committing a lewd act on a child, oral copulation of a person under 16 and sexual penetration by a foreign object. She is set to be arraigned Wednesday in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom.
Murry was arrested Sept. 5 and was released the same day on $250,000 bail, according to sheriff’s department jail records. Her employment status with the Los Angeles Unified School District was not immediately available.
Prosecutors allege Murry assaulted the boy during a two-month period that began in May.
If convicted as charged, she could be sentenced to a maximum of 17 years in prison.
