June 8, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
A former Orange County high school teacher pleaded guilty Monday to three sex-related crimes, including unlawful sex, for having a relationship with an underage student.

Naomi Perez, 33, of Brea, also pleaded guilty to vandalizing the student's car.

Investigators say Perez and the boy had a relationship that lasted several months while she was teaching at Saddleback High School in Santa Ana in 2007.

The relationship came to light after the student reported his car had been vandalized outside his house.

Perez faces up to four years in prison.
