A teen victim of a former substitute teacher in Los Angeles is now suing her and the school district for the months-long abuse.
28-year-old Michelle Yeh was sentenced to four years in prison on January 15th after she had sex with two minors and molested two others.
Now, one of her 16-year-old victims, identified as â€œJohn Doe,â€ has filed a lawsuit for sexual abuse, breach of mandatory duty, and negligence against the teacher and the Los Angeles Unified School District.
She’d enticed him with trips to Disneyland and showered him with gifts, including spending $400 on a new Xbox 360 and video games.
The student, who was 15 at the time, was in her biology class and would receive high grades he didnâ€™t earn, according to the victim.
After buying him gifts, she went to his house, and, again, according to the victim, â€œShe started rubbing my face, calling me cute, handsome. She started kissing me, and from there we had sex.â€
The relationship lasted for up to two months. The pair would â€œeat, go somewhere, come back, have sex,â€ the teen says.
The lawsuit also revealed that the teacher supplied him with marijuana, alcohol and prescription drugs, including Xanax.
â€œAfter drinking alcohol and abusing drugs, she would engage in sexual intercourse with John Doe,â€ the lawsuit says.
The victim claims the months of sexual abuse and gifts has caused â€œirreparable harm,â€ and is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.
Investigators discovered that the wayward teacher preyed upon other students with the same manner; meeting them at hotels for sex.
â€œSexual abuse has become an epidemic at LAUSD,â€ the teenâ€™s lawyer, David Ring told a newspaper. â€œThis lawsuit is about holding the district accountable for its failure to properly screen, train and supervise its teachers.â€
She was arrested last July and convicted for engaging in sexual intercourse with a minor under 16, oral copulation of a minor under 16, child molestation, and committing a lewd act on a child.
