Student Sues Convicted Perv Teacher After Months of Sexual Abuse
A teen victim of a sex-crazed teacher in Los Angeles is now suing the woman and the school district for the months of abuse.
Michelle Yeh, a former Los Angeles substitute teacher at San Pedro High School was sentenced to four years in prison on Jan. 15 after she had sex with two minors and molested two others.
Now, one of her victims, a 16-year-old only identified as “John Doe,” has filed a lawsuit for sexual abuse, breach of mandatory duty and negligence against his teacher and the Los Angeles Unified School District, KTLA reported.
She had enticed the boy with trips to Disneyland and showered him in gifts, including spending $400 on a new Xbox 360 and video games, according to the lawsuit.
The student, who was 15 at the time, was in Yeh’s biology class, and would receive high grades he didn’t deserve, he said.
After buying him gifts, she went over to his house, but had plans for more than just playing video games.
“She started rubbing my face, calling me cute, handsome,” the victim told the local station. “She started kissing me and from there we had sex.”
The relationship lasted for up to two months where the two would “eat, go somewhere, come back, have sex,” the boy described.
The lawsuit revealed that the teacher also supplied the teen boy with marijuana, alcohol and prescription drugs, including Xanax.
“After drinking alcohol and abusing drugs, Yeh would engage in sexual intercourse with John Doe,” the lawsuit said.
Michelle Yeh, a 28-year-old teacher at San Pedro High (entrace pictured) is being sued after she was convicted for having sex with her students.
The victim claims the months of sexual abuse and gifts has caused “irreparable harm,” and is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.
Investigators discovered that Yeh preyed on other students with the same method, meeting them at hotels for sex.
“Sexual abuse has become an epidemic at LAUSD,” the teen’s lawyer, David Ring told the Daily Breeze. “This lawsuit is about holding the district accountable for its failure to properly screen, train and supervise its teachers.”
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.
