Former Bay Area High School Teacher Pleads No Contest to Having Sex with Student

Fremont, CA – Corine Audiat-Gee, pleaded no contest to charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and oral copulation of a person under 18, with one of her students while she was a teacher at Washington High School in Fremont.

Under the plea deal announced by the District Attorney, Audiat-Gee may not face jail time.  By pleading no contest to the 2 above mentioned felonies, the judge dropped four other felony charges of contacting a minor for sex, sending harmful material to a minor with sexual intent.  The court also dropped a misdemeanor charge of child molestation. 

Audiat-Gee is scheduled to be sentenced on February 9.  Even though she may serve 180 days, the judge could allow her to serve the time on house arrest.  Either way, she will have to register as a sex offender in California and surrender her teaching credentials. 

A civil suit has been filed on behalf of one of the victims, accusing Audiat-Gee of “grooming” her students by firting, texting, and displays of affection, such as hugging.  According to the suit, the now former teacher texted a 16-year-old male student that she wanted to pull him into the gym room and kiss him.

School systems need to take proper precautions to keep minors safe from predators.
