A Taylorsville, Utah, dance instructor was arrested for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a 17-year-old student.
Amber Telford pleaded guilty to charges of felony unlawful sexual activity with a minor, KSL reported. Prosecutors on the case subsequently dismissed six identical charges against her.
Telford, a 33-year-old mother of three, was arrested after police accused her of having sex with a boy under her tutelage from September to December of 2014.
“She started by flirting with [the boy] and eventually began a sexual relationship with him that occurred at her home, her mother’s home and also in a vehicle belonging to Amber,” a Salt Lake County Jail report read.
The former dance instructor also reportedly took the teenager to a church parking lot to have sex with him. She “groomed” the boy by buying him clothes and paying for his trip to Disneyland for a dance competition, police said.
The issue only came to light last November after Telford’s estranged husband hired a private detective to investigate her. The detective reportedly caught the two in Telford’s studio.
Telford filed for divorce from her husband in September of 2014.
