A California high school teacher accused of having booze-filled sex romps with one of her students appeared calm in court Wednesday after they pled not guilty to the felony charges.

Beaumont High teacher Samantha Ciotta, 32, was charged in September with one count of oral copulation with a minor and two counts of sexual intercourse with a minor boy arising out of the incidents that took place in June.

The married mother of two, accompanied by family members on Wednesday in the court appear, but her husband was notably absent.

Police launched an investigation into Ciotta after hearing reports she had an affair with one of her students, including a scandalous Snapchat video showing that the teacher is wearing a shirt and panties”, while drinking alcohol with two shirtless minors, the documents, obtained by the Patch revealed.

The student told the police that he at first ” tried to cover for Ciotta so she would not get in trouble,” but changed his mind after she had sex with his 19-year-old friend and he said the student, “had ruined her life,” the documents added.

The married mother of two was arrested in September after a student told police about the alleged affair.

He later told the police he had sexual intercourse with Ciotta five times and that he could not recall how often Ciotta performed oral sex on him, because he “was drunk during most of the time,” Patch reported.

A judge in the presidency of the high-profile case set her new bail at $25,000, which she posted after her appearance.

Ciotta, an English teacher, remains on paid leave from the Beaumont Unified School District.
