Authorities say a former counselor to high school students in Northern California is facing more than two dozen counts of having sex with at least two teen boys.
The Record Searchlight reports that 36-year-old Jacqueline Bryce Herron has pleaded not guilty in Shasta County Superior Court to the charges, which include engaging in sexual intercourse.
Herron was working at a group home and a continuation high school when the alleged crimes occurred in 2015 and 2016, the newspaper reported. The boys were 16 at the time.
A preliminary hearing is set for July 20.
Herron could not be reached for comment on the case. Her attorney, Alec Rose, said he was not authorized by his client to discuss her case.
