A Georgia music teacher admitted to engaging in a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old in court reportedly said he persuaded her to do it, but that she was sorry.
Therese Gunn, 54, reportedly told the court that the unidentified teen coerced her into the relationship that developed at South Gwinnett High School where Gunn was an orchestra teacher.
“He did,” Gunn reportedly said in front of Judge Warren Davis. "He was like a used car salesman."
Gunn, who had worked as a teacher for 25 years, had sexual relations with the student on school property and elsewhere, according to reports. The boy's mom reported the teacher after she found her son's diary.
A detective also learned that Gunn hosted a party at her home and allowed the teen and two other female students to smoke marijuana and reportedly joined them, Fox News reported.
The boy told the court she "made adolescence hell," according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Gunn still pleaded guilty plea to a single count of sexual assault by a person with supervisory authority.
Jim Wall, Gunn’s attorney, reportedly said Gunn regrets her actions.
"She regrets very much the pain she caused to the victim and his family as well as her own family and friends," Wall said.
Gunn was sentenced to just 90 days in prison.
