Montebello police Lt. Louis Lopez tells Fox11 that an 18-year-old youth told police last week that he had a sexual relationship with Cortez while he was a student in her Spanish class at Roosevelt High School in Los Angeles.

During the investigation, Lopez says they uncovered another boy who said he had had sex with Cortez at her suburban Montebello home.
