A high school teacher at Esteban Torres High School has been arrested and charged for sexually abusing one of her students. Authorities for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office say that Gina Murry, 32, was in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student for at least two months, beginning in May 2018.
Murray taught biology at Esteban Torres’ East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy.
Arrested on September 5, Murry was charged with a litany of felony charges, including six counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, four counts lewd act upon a child, four counts of oral copulation of a person under 15 and four counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object.
Students who spoke anonymously with reporter Leah Uko of Fox11 said the 15-year-old student bragged about his relationship with Murry and showed classmates nude pictures of the teacher. This is reportedly how teachers became aware of the relationship.
Officials for the Los Angeles Unified School District released a press statement, saying that parents had been notified that Murry was reassigned from Esteban Torres High School. There is no information on where, or when, Murry was reassigned. In its press release, the School District added that the allegations were “disturbing and undermine our continuing efforts to provide a secure learning environment for all of our students.”
Murry has now posted a $250,000 bail and been released into the community. If convicted on all of the charges, she faces up to 17 years in prison.
