Teacher arraigned for sex with student

SANTA ANA, Calif. Thirty-three-year-old Naomi Perez, who was fired from her teaching job early October, is accused of having sex with a student and vandalizing his car.

Investigators say she had a sexual relationship with the student in 2007, but it wasn't discovered until August of this year when he reported his car had been vandalized. The alleged victim is now 18 years old.

If convicted, Perez faces more than four years in prison. Perez is currently free on $50,000 bail.

She is due back in court on Nov. 3.
