Amy Corinne Bramlett was accused of having sex with a current student and a former student arrested in September. According to the Sun, Bramlett, 46, is a program specialist at Indian Springs High. Last week, there was a break in her case.
The two people who claimed to have had sex with the teacher recanted their statements, according to the lawyer of the accused woman. The two young men signed statements taken by an investigator working for the defense attorney, Michael Scafiddi, according to NBC4 News.
The two young men did not release statements to the press, however.
An investigation was lead by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, in their Specialized Investigation Division/Crimes Against Children Detail. The reports state that Bramlett had unlawful sex with a 17-year-old male between January and June of this year at her home in the 7200 block of Sunrise Court in Highland, said the Sun. The Crimes Against Children Detail found another student in their investigating of the case, that time it was a student of hers who would have been 16 years old at the time of the alleged crime, reported the paper.
At her arraignment in September of this year, Bramlett pleaded not guilty, according to the Sun. On Monday morning, November 3rd, Bramlett was in court for a status hearing where her attorney made a statement.
“Our position from the beginning has been — and we’ve told the DA repeatedly — is that our offer to resolve the case is to dismiss the case,” Scafiddi said in the Sun. “My client, 100 percent, maintains her innocence. She has made it clear to me that she will never accept a [plea] offer in this case because she’s committed no crimes.”
The specific acts she was charged with in September was two counts of oral copulation with a person under 18 years old and one count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor more than three years younger than legal adult age.
The accused is currently out on $100,000 bail, which was reduced from an initial $1.2 million bail figure, said the Sun. The San Bernardino City Unified district placed Bramlett on administrative leave.
Bramlett will be in another court hearing on December 15, according to the paper.
Her lawyer told the Sun, “I think once the DA gets the chance to review additional evidence, we [are] hopeful he [will] drop the charges.”
