Female Teacher Gets 3 Years Probation for Sex With A Boy

Nadia Diaz, 27-year-old former teacher at Washington Union High School, Fresno, California, has been sentenced to three years of probation and 30 days in an adult offender work program for having sex with a student in early 2010.

Judge Dennis Peterson ordered Diaz to  enroll in mental health counseling and attend a sex offender treatment program. Prosecutor Midori Howo objected to the sentence, saying Diaz deserved time behind bars for violating a position of trust. The victim, who is now 18, told the court that he had persuaded Diaz to sleep with him and claimed he was to blame for her being prosecuted. "I personally feel that this is one of the rare cases where it shouldn't be taken as child abuse. I believe 100% that Mrs Diaz made a big mistake and definitely after we had ended whatever relationship we had, she realised it."

Diaz faced a maximum of five years in state prison for two counts of sexual intercourse with a minor. Diaz was a substitute teacher, but she later became a full-time social science teacher at Washington Union High School in Easton.

According to information given by authorities said the boy was 14 at the time, but the warrant says he was 15. Diaz said she was 24 when she had sex with the 15-year-old boy in January and February 2010, according to the affidavit. The boy told they stopped having sex after the second sexual encounter because rumors began to spread around the school that they were seeing each other. When the school principal confronted Diaz about rumors spreading around campus several months ago, the warrant indicates she put her head down, said she regretted it had happened and asked Gold to forgive her.

The boy told investigators that he first had sex with Diaz in January 2010. He said he was alone watching a movie at a friend's home when Diaz texted him around midnight. "She was at a bar because she was having a rough day," and Diaz later met the boy at the friend's home and had sex with the underage boy. The next month, Diaz and the student met again at the friend's home in the afternoon and they had sex. After performing sex acts on each other and having full sexual intercourse,, Diaz told the boy that "she couldn't believe she was doing this".

At the time of the alleged crimes, Diaz worked as a substitute teacher and the boy was a sophomore at the Easton school.
