    KPIC: Documents describe alleged teacher sex (Aug 1 2012)

Some of the students allegedly involved with the 36-year-old math teacher were as young as 14. Kern County court documents obtained by Eyewitness News state that Failla would send text messages to students one by one to come see her in her classroom. Once there, Failla would perform oral sex on the students, according to court papers. Police were tipped off about the alleged sex acts when a teacher at the high school overheard a student in the locker room talking about a female teacher who had engaged in oral sex with one of his friends.

    I would like an update if at all possible. I went to college at CSUB with Amber and I am finding it hard to believe that she would do something like what the papers are saying she did. I would like to know how her and her family are doing and what happens next.
     
  8. My name is Dorothy White I am currently a sophmore at California City High School, last year I was a freshman in Failla's class for Algebra 1. She was an amazing teacher, the first teacher that I have had for math and actually understood what was going on. It is very hard for me to believe that she would do such activity. Never did she display herself as in this activity that is being claimed she has partaking in. Not only was she a good teacher but se kept me out of trouble and kept my head on track with school and outside of school. Amber Failla is a very good teacher, counselor, and an excellent cheer coach. People are making these rumors about her and no one can really prove that it is true. Mrs. Failla cared about her students more than anything and tried to keep each and everyone of us out of trouble. Just because she had close relatonship with her students doesn't mean she was haveing sexual intercorse with them. So to everyone who can update and let us know what is going with ths situation please make sure that the information you update is true and provable. Please and Thank you

    Thank you Dorothy for your kind words. Stay out of trouble. :)
     
  10. I miss you so much, I really hope that everyone stops trying to make me believe that you did this. I don't believe you did. Even if the court proves that you did I myself, will never believe it. So far I have not been in any serious trouble I have been suspended though. Nothing serious. Well hope to hear from you again soon
    Love you,
    Dorothy Bell White

    Bakersfield Californian: Former teacher takes plea deal in student sex case (Apr 5 2013)

    A high school teacher charged with eight felonies in connection with engaging in sex acts with students pleaded no contest Friday to a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse. Amber Lee Failla faces a maximum of 16 months in prison at her May 7 sentencing, but prosecutor Marcus Cuper said the judge indicated Failla will be sentenced to a year in jail. Failla has agreed to lifetime registration as a sex offender.

    ...

    Defense attorney Timothy Lemucchi said he also believes the plea deal is fair, especially in light of his client's background. "She has a history of psychiatric problems," Lemucchi said. Failla is bipolar, and Lemucchi said she was given a drug that has a side effect of making a person "hyperactively sexual." Lemucchi said Failla was the recipient of poor medical treatment in that she wasn't given a second drug to counteract those effects.
