MIAMI (TND) — A former middle school teacher has pleaded guilty to six criminal charges for repeatedly having sex with a 14-year-old student, and she has been sentenced.

Drama teacher Brittiny Lopez-Murray from Hialeah Middle School was arrested two years ago.

WTVJ reported the charges she admitted to included lewd and lascivious battery, lewd and lascivious molestation of a child, and electronic transmission harmful to minors.

Lopez-Murray was also sentenced for her crimes, which her victim’s family approved.

The 33-year-old got two years of community control and 10 years of probation. She’ll also have to register as a sex offender and attend a program for sex offenders.

The police report from 2021 said Lopez-Murray reached out to the teen, who was then attending high school, and they had sex in her car.

Police said she was caught after the boy’s sister became suspicious of his behavior, and then saw “explicit text messages and photos” on his phone.
