A teacher’s aide is accused of luring a student to her home with alcohol and marijuana before having sex with him multiple times, according to police in California.

The Fresno Police Department said that they have arrested 36-year-old Theresa Ramirez after being accused of having sex with the special needs student multiple times in her apartment.

Ramirez was charged with unlawful sex with a minor, oral copulation, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

She was booked into jail and her bail has been set at $45,000.

If convicted, Ramirez faces up to five years in prison and will have to register as a sex offender.

According to the police investigation, Ramirez is a mother of two children and was working as a teacher’s aide at the Hoover High School.

Police told Fresno County Superior Court Judge John Vogt that the illegal relationship began when the boy was 15-years-old.

Ramirez invited the boy to her home and promised to help him with homework.

While the boy was doing homework, Ramirez placed her hands on the boy and took him to a bedroom.

The teacher’s aide then pushed the boy onto a bed and had sex with him.

On another occasion, Ramirez gave the boy alcohol and marijuana, and they then had sex.

On a third occasion, when the boy refused to have sex with Ramirez, she promised him alcohol marijuana, and $300.

The court was told that when the boy turned 17-years-old, Ramirez threw a birthday party for him and his friends at her home.

The boy’s friends drank alcohol and smoked marijuana while the victim and the suspect went to a bedroom to have sex.

A detective told the judge that during a phone conversation between the boy and the teacher’s aide, she told him to deny everything in order not to ruin her life.

During another conversation, Ramirez told the boy to be smart and deny everything.

Ramirez denied all the allegations, saying that the boy’s family made up the stories to get money from the Fresno Unified School District.
