Former McNair High School teacher admits to sex with one of her students

A former McNair High School teacher has pleaded guilty to having sex with one of her students.

Christina Eve Oliver, now 25, could face up to 16 months in state prison, though the sentence will be up to San Joaquin County Superior Court Judge Franklin Stephenson. He will also decide whether Oliver should register for life as a sex offender.

Oliver pleaded guilty Friday to two counts each of unlawful sex with a minor and oral copulation, according to court records.

The Stockton resident was arrested in February 2009 after a 16-year-old boy's parents learned of the relationship and went to police. The boy had been a student in one of Oliver's sophomore English classes.

Prosecutors said at the time that the crimes occurred between Jan. 30, 2009, and the date of Oliver's Feb. 10, 2009, arrest.

After her arrest, Oliver was placed on unpaid administrative leave from the West Lane school, where she had taught since 2007. She did not renew her contract for the 2009/10 school year, according to Lodi Unified School District.

Oliver's teaching credential has been suspended, according to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

She has remained out of custody after posting $50,000 bail hours after her first court appearance last year.

Oliver will return to court July 12, but the actual sentencing date has not yet been set. Attorneys will argue the matter, a psychologist will interview her and a probation officer will then prepare a recommendation, said Deputy District Attorney Kristine Reed.

Because the victim was not under age 16 and no force was involved, sex offender registration is not mandatory, the prosecutor said. State law leaves it up to the judge, though attorneys are expected to argue the matter at a later date.

Oliver's attorney, Ralph Cingcon, declined to comment.

    I guess if she had gotten pregnant and married her student like Mr. Krenke, everything would be OK. Why the back lash now that it is a female? Where are all the supporters that supported Mr. Krenke. She deserves no more or less than what Krenke received. One year in jail. Maybe she should have set up an apartment one block from the school like the Lodi High teacher.

    "...The victim told police and a Utah Division of Child and Family Services worker that the teacher would bring coffee to school for him and his friends two or three times a week. The boy also told police that his teacher paid him money after having sex with him in her home on at least three different occasions in June 2009. She is alleged to have given him $500 on each occasion...""...Court documents allege she paid him between $1,400 and $1,500 after having sex with him..."Another senior project gone awry?story belowhttp://law.rightpundits.com/?p=758

    JBhiker- That might be the issuer? didn't we recently catch an administrator who had similar problems. And these edumacators want to teach sex edumacation? Was this a "hands-on" student activity that they so fondly discuss?There must be an epidemic of women teachers and young boys? Look at this one where the teacher paid the boy for his attentiveness. Who is in charge in the classroom? No wonder kids seem to be so confused! How can the girls compete with the teachers? Sorry about the junior prom, I'll be there with my teacher----and a guaranteed "A" for extra credit?

    I forgot to change "women" to singular, too. Too many flashbacks to high school English, I guess!

    Oops, bad proofreading. I forgot to delete the "s" on issues.

    It's good to read that her credential has been suspended.I had one English teacher like her at Lodi High many years ago. She was quite popular, but some boys were uncomfortable that she focused her attention too much on them. She quite often told one I know how handsome he was.I'm no shrink, but I wonder if some of these teachers have an emotional maturity issues. That might be the case with this young women, and the teacher I mentioned before acted a lot like a teenager, too, even though she was in her early thirties.

    This can be held up as an example of how Education is leading us to a real-life movie called "Idiocracy". I don't understand why Principals are not held responsible at least partially for allowing such lax rules on their campus!

    I hope it was worth her career.... but I doubt it.

    I am surprised that a conviction was achieved... after all after Bill Clinton was able to have the same done to him... with his position of power over a young intern... and his only wrong doing apparently was lying to a grand jury...standards were lowered and Americans think less of this as a result. My guess is that some jurors were probably envious of the boy… so of course punishment would be difficult to dish out. The teacher obviously did wrong and punishment should be delivered… too bad standards have been reduced to what they are.

    Christina was a teacher. She taught. The boy learned. What is the big deal?If he was taking lessons from one his peers and got her pregnant....that would be a big deal! Thank our lucky stars.

    Dang, I remember most of my female teachers and believe me, not ONE of them was anybody I wanted intimate moments with.

He probably couldn't keep his mouth shut bragging to his friends and thats how it got back to Mom & DAD. Just my opinion..

    Where were these teachers when I went to school, do you think for a minute I would complain.

    What about the Lodi teacher who is actually married to and has a child with his former student? Wasn't his punishment harsher and didn't he have to register as a sex offender? Just because she was a woman and there was "no force" shouldn't make her eligible to be off any easier.

  • posted at 3:57 am on Wed, Jun 16, 2010.


    To T&C: The article did not say she would not have to register, it only said it is not mandatory and the judge could decide to make her register. You need to work on your reading comprehension and check your facts before you type a comment.

    I just pray the little boy will be all right. There should be a double standard here. The kid will have something to talk about for years.

  • posted at 3:45 am on Wed, Jun 16, 2010.


    Journey usually I don't agree that there is a double standard on much, but in this case, I really feel that your comment was justifiedl.This teacher will soon be free to do whatever she wants again. This definitely was no more than a slap on the hand.

    The CTA lawyers did their job, she gets off with a slap on the hand.

    We all know that had the teacher been a male and the victim female, the outcome would have been severe. What's with the double standard in this country?

    Worst of all because the (BOY) was a willing participant, she escaped even having to register as a sex offender! "What a sweet deal!"

    The penalty is so minimal plus reduced with "Good time" that she knew she would be "Back out" very soon, therefore no deterrence!

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
