A Brea high school teacher faces charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a student after her arrest on Wednesday, police said.

Michele Lynn Johnson, a 45-year-old teacher at Brea Olinda High School (map), was taken into custody at her Anaheim home after Brea police determined she had inappropriate sexual contact with the victim on several occasions, police said.

Brea police were contacted by the unidentified student’s father earlier in the day. Johnson was arrested and booked at the Brea Police Department. She was released after posting bail.

In a statement, Dr. A.J. Roland, the superintendent of Brea Olinda Unified School District, said Johnson was on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

Roland said she was restricted from being at the high school campus or any other school sites or activities.

"We are working very closely with the Brea Police Department on this issue,” Roland said.

Detectives said they were investigating the possibility that there may be other potential victims.

Anyone with information on the case was asked to call Brea Police Detective Debbie Stark at (714) 990-7638.
