A South Bay teen testified Thursday his former sixth-grade teacher and godmother supplied him with sex, marijuana, beer and trips to Las Vegas, Disneyland and Magic Mountain
, 10News reported.
The teen, identified only as Christopher R., said sex with Carmina Lopez, 33, began when he was 11 years old and started with fondling.
"Well, she used to touch me inappropriately … my general places," Christopher told the court.
He told of being tutored in reading by Lopez while he was a student in her sixth-grade class, and said he had sex with Lopez "about, like, 40 to 50 times."
Lopez cried when the district attorney showed cards and pictures Christopher had sent her when he was younger, with notations like "love always" and other endearing markings.
Just before his 12th birthday, Christopher said she began initiating sexual contact.
He said some of the sex acts occurred in the backseat of her car, in her classroom and at her house.
"I just remember her grabbing me," Christopher testified.
Christopher's testimony was sometimes vague, sometimes graphic, and he said he was a kid and didn't really understand what was going on. He said he didn't like it.
"I'd wake up with lipstick on my face ... she would try to take a picture with lipstick on my face … mess around with me like that." said Christopher. He told the court he slept "sometimes on the bed but mostly on the floor because I didn't want her sleeping next to me."
But Christopher told the court Lopez drove him around to buy marijuana and beer. He also said she bought him a dirt bike and took him to amusement parks.
"I'd do it to get what I want," said Christopher.
In the end, he said he wanted out, despite her doing what he wanted, including getting breast implants to please him. When he told Lopez the affair was over, Christopher said she "went psycho" and threatened to kill herself and her son.
