VISTA (CNS) - A 35-year-old Escondido teacher who had sexual contact with an underage student when she was 16 and 17 was sentenced Friday to 90 days in jail and ordered to stay away from children.
Mario Humerez, a father of three who taught at Valley High School, pleaded guilty last month to oral copulation on a minor under 18, said Deputy District Attorney Jodi Breton.
The defendant was placed on three years probation and ordered to do 30 days of public service work. The 90-day jail term was one of the probation's conditions.
Humerez acknowledged his misconduct after his arrest in June, prosecutor Terri Perez told a judge at the defendant's arraignment.
The victim told investigators the 16-month relationship began in September 2007, Escondido police Lt. Christopher K. Wynn said. The victim said there were two instances of sexual contact, one while other students in Humerez's class watched a movie, according to the lieutenant.
