Police arrested a female Roosevelt High School teacher Wednesday after two students came forward revealing they had a sexual relationship with her, reports the Associated Press.

Last week, an 18-year-old male told police he had sex with Gabriela Cortez, 42, while he was a student in her Spanish class at Roosevelt. Another alleged victim came forward during the investigation and said he also had sex with the teacher as a teenager in her Montebello home. Both students are now adults, reports KNBC News.

Cortez, was booked into the Montebello City Jail on suspicion of two felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. She was released on $140,000 bail and is scheduled to appear before a court on March 22.
