Vancouver drama teacher pleads guilty to sex with student

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A former Vancouver high school drama teacher has pleaded guilty to charges that she had sex with a 15-year-old student.

The Vancouver Columbian reports that 36-year-old Stephanie McCrea pleaded guilty Thursday to four counts of third-degree rape of a child and one count of tampering with a witness.

Prosecutors say McCrea and the boy had sex in her home and her office beginning in December.

The witness tampering charge is a result of communication she had with the victim through a fake Facebook page. Prosecutors say she asked the boy to keep their relationship quiet and practiced what to say if he spoke to law enforcement.

She is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 30.

No students have come forward with additional allegations.
