Puerto Rican English Teacher Found Guilty of Taking 14-Year-Old Boy To Motel For Sex
FOUND GUILTY: YAIRA COTTO FLORES
SAN JUAN — A federal jury in Puerto Rico has found a teacher guilty of transporting a 14-year-old male student to a motel with the intent to have sex.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Friday that Yaira Cotto Flores was the student’s English teacher at a school in the western town of San Lorenzo.
Federal authorities said Cotto gave him several gifts including an acne treatment kit and an expensive watch before taking him to a motel in March 2016.
He said that he and Cotto had sex for about an hour in the motel and that she gave him a condom and helped him put in on.
Cotto was ordered to remain under house arrest until a sentencing scheduled for August. Her attorney could not be immediately reached for comment.
