Montebello, Calif. (The Weekly Vice) - Gabriella Cortez, a 42-year-old Spanish teacher at Roosevelt High School, was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly had sex with two students.
According to Montebello police, an investigation was launched after an 18-year-old former student went to the Montebello police station and told detectives that he had a sexual relationship with Cortez from 2008 to 2010 while he was a student at Roosevelt High School.
During the interview, the former student mentioned the name of another student who Cortez also allegedly had sex with. When detectives interviewed that student, he confirmed having sexual intercourse with Cortez at her home in Montebello.
Investigators say the first former student came forward to police because his conscious was bothering him.
Cortez was booked into the Montebello city jail and faces two felony counts of suspicion of sexual intercourse with a child. She was released after posting $140,000 bond.
Cortez is due back in court on March 22.
