CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A substitute teacher and ROTC instructor at Mar Vista High School pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of statutory rape for having sex with a 17-year-old female student.
Martin Albert Gallegos, 48, also admitted an allegation that the victim, a senior, was not his spouse and was more than three years younger than him.
Gallegos was arrested April 9, one day after a campus police officer got a report about the crime, which occurred about a month earlier, said sheriff's Lt. Dan Brislin.
Gallegos had worked for the Sweetwater Union High School District since last fall, filling in periodically for full-time teachers, according to SUHSD spokesman Manny Rubio.
The defendant most likely will be placed on probation when he is sentenced Sept. 23, said Deputy District Attorney Carolyn Matzger.
