Colette Phelps faces charges of lewd acts with a child‎

Colette Phelps, 28-year-old teacher from Los Gatos, California, has been arrested for molesting a 14-year-old student.

The alleged sexual relationship between teacher and the student began on April 10 and continued until June 1. Phelps is facing up to three years in jail.

Phelps, who has been a teacher at the private Stratford Middle School in San Jose, California, for five years, did not enter a plea when she appeared before a court to face two charges of lewd behaviour. Her lawyer, Steven Clark said he would present evidence that Phelps had a medical issue that could have played a part in the alleged abuse.

The San Jose Police Department is asking any victims or others with information to contact Detective D. Ichige or Sgt. R. Schriefer at 408-277-4102. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers tip line at 408 947-STOP.
