Twin Teachers In H.S. Sex Bust

DECEMBER 15--Meet Franca and Antonia Munoz-Juvera. The 26-year-old twins work as teachers at the same California high school. And they're both facing felony charges as a result of an illicit sexual relationship with a female student. According to Riverside County sheriff's investigators, Franca (pictured below at left) had a sexual relationship with the underage girl, for which she was arrested yesterday and charged with lewd acts with a minor. While Antonia was not hit with a sex crime, she was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor because she was allegedly aware of her sister's involvement with the girl. As so-called mandatory reporters, California teachers are required by law to report instances of child abuse or neglect. The twins, who live together in Rancho Cucamonga, are being held on $50,000 bail in the Riverside county lockup and are scheduled for a Monday court appearance. An 18-year-old woman who lives with them, Eileen Valerio, was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. (1 page)
