A former teacher at a Los Angeles high school pleaded no contest today to sexually assaulting a student last year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Gina Murry (dob 12/24/85) entered her plea to one count each of lewd act upon a child and oral copulation of a person under 16. She is expected to be sentenced to two years in state prison on Jan. 14, 2020, in Department 116 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

Deputy District Attorney Jessica Kronstadt of the Sex Crimes Division is prosecuting the case.

In May 2018, Murry, who taught at Esteban Torres High School, sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy, the prosecutor said.

Case BA471486 was investigated by the Special Victims Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
