No Sex-Offender Status for Murrieta Teacher Who Had Sex With Student

MURRIETA, Calif. -- A female high school English teacher who had sex with an underage girl at her school was sentenced Thursday to three years probation.

Crissy Torcella Hisey, 28, must also serve 118 days in the county jail, to be served on weekends, according to court records.

But Hisey will not have to register as a sex offender, said Ryan Hightower of the Riverside County District Attorney's Office. 

Hisey pleaded guilty in August to 10 counts of oral copulation with a child under 18.

As part of a plea agreement, Riverside County Superior Court Judge John Monterosso dismissed a charge of distribution or exhibition of lewd material to a minor.

Hisey was arrested in May, after Murrieta police were told Hisey was having sex with a minor at Vista Murrieta High School, where she taught, said Murrieta police Sgt. Jim Ganley.

The teacher and the student both admitted to having an ongoing sexual relationship, Ganley said at the time of the arrest.
