California City teacher to register as sex offender after taking plea deal

Teacher allegedly had sex with student

CALIFORNIA CITY, Calif. - A Cal-City teacher accused of having sex with students reached a plea deal with the court.

As part of that agreement, Amber Failla will have to register as a sex offender.

She will be back in court in May for sentencing.  She faces a maximum of two years in prison, but could be placed on probation.

Failla was facing eight sex-related charges.

Court documents showed a high school student claimed she had sex with him in a car.

Two other victims also came forward, saying the teacher came onto them, engaged in oral sex, and texted them naked pictures.

Failla was arrested at her Tehachapi home in July.
