Colorado teacher arrested, admits bearing student's child, police say
(CBS/KCNC/AP) GREELEY, Colo. - Police say a Colorado school teacher has admitted having a child with a student and is facing sexual assault charges.
Spanish teacher Rhonda Eisenberg was booked into the Weld County jail Tuesday afternoon after police said she admitted to having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student while he lived with her in 2010.
According to CBS Denver, Eisenberg had guardianship over the boy, whose parents lived in Mexico at the time. In a police affidavit detectives said they found a document that was written in Spanish that gave Eisenberg legal guardianship over the student.
An official said it appears the family left Colorado but the student wanted to stay so he could graduate from Northridge High School in Greeley, about 55 miles north of Denver, the station reports.
Eisenberg reportedly told police the student, now 19, offers assistance as the child's father.
CBS Denver reports that during a court appearance Wednesday, the 44-year-old Eisenberg told a judge she's not a bad person and just wants to go home and see her three children.
