MARTINEZ (CBS SF) — A Brentwood high school teacher accused of offering a student $200 to take her clothes off and then meeting her for sex has pleaded no contest to attempted statutory rape.
Prosecutors said 39-year-old Darin Duane Price’s plea was part of a deal that requires him to serve 90 days in jail. Price, a former math teacher and girls’ basketball coach at Heritage High School, entered the plea last week – days before he was scheduled to go on trial.
The 17-year-old student told investigators she was in Price’s classroom for a makeup math test in January 2010 when he asked her to undress and laid down two $100 bills, according to investigators.
Police said they used the girl’s cellphone the next day to arrange a meeting for sex, and arrested Price when he showed up.
