Teacher accused of having sex with student takes the stand

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (CBS 8) - A former South Bay elementary school teacher accused of having sex with her godson and former student told her side of the story in court Friday.

Prosecutors claim Carmina Lopez forced herself on the sixth grader, who is now 16 years old, back in 2007.

On the stand Friday, Lopez testified it was the boy who raped her.

"When he bit my right cheek, he said pull your pants down. Pull your pants down. And I remember thinking, I'm not going to pull my pants down. He could rip my cheek off. He wants to, but I'm not going to pull my pants down," Lopez said in court.

Lopez has pleaded not guilty to charges she molested the boy over a four-year period.
