Here’s more from KCBS:
Megan Sainsbury was booked into county jail on three misdemeanor charges of child annoyance, but posted bail and is waiting for arraignment. Amy Cornell, a spokeswoman with the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office, says the alleged abuse took place from October 2007 through January 2009. According to the San Jose Mercury News, Sainsbury bought the teen gifts, including a cell phone, to encourage the girl to continue the relationship. This is the third time in two weeks that a female P.E. teacher has been arrested in the South Bay on suspicion of having an inappropriate relationship with a female student.
