Former Kerman teacher admits to having sex with student

FRESNO, Calif.

34-year-old /*Maria Vega*/ admitted to having a relationship with a 17-year-old student at Kerman High last year.

Vega taught English as a second language and coached junior varsity girls' soccer. She also posed for pictures on a website for aspiring models and actors.

Vega's plea deal could lead to a sentence of as much as one year in prison. A judge will decide next month whether to force her to register as a sex offender.
