FEMALE HIGH SCHOOL BAND INSTRUCTOR CHARGED WITH HAVING UNLAWFUL SEX WITH MALE STUDENT

 

SANTA ANA – A female high school band instructor has been charged with having an unlawful sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male high school student. Carlie Rose Attebury, 29, Orange, is charged with two felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, two felony counts of oral copulation of a minor, two felony counts of sexual penetration by foreign object of a minor, one felony count of lewd acts on a child, and one felony count of dissuading a witness from reporting a crime. If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of eight years and eight months in state prison.  Attebury is expected to surrender to the court on a $250,000 warrant and be arraigned Monday, Nov. 10, 2008, at the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana. The time and Department are to be determined.

 

Between February and September 2008, Attebury is accused of having unlawful sex on numerous occasions with a male high school student beginning when he was 15 years old at her home in Orange. She is accused of illegally engaging in digital penetration, oral copulation, and intercourse with the victim. Attebury is accused of meeting the student while working at El Modena High School in Orange.

 

The Principal at El Modena High School became suspicious of the relationship between Attebury and the victim and contacted the Orange Police Department (OPD) in October 2008. After OPD began investigating, Attebury is accused of having a phone conversation with the victim and encouraging him not to cooperate with the investigation.

 

Anyone with additional information or who believes they have been a victim is encouraged to contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Randy Litwin at (714)347-8794 or OPD Detective Scott Trausch at (714)744-7579.

 

Deputy District Attorney Nikki Buracchio of the Sexual Assault Unit is prosecuting this case.
