Sub teacher in court, waves prelim in teen sex case

Posted: Updated:

A former substitute teacher waved her preliminary exam Thursday after being accused of having sex with three students.

Heidi Lewis, 42, of Midland, is charged with six counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct while she was teaching at Bay City Public Schools.          

Prosecutors allege Lewis had sex with the 17-year-old students last year after school had been dismissed for summer recess.

The Saginaw News reports that a girlfriend of one of the teens told a school official after her boyfriend spoke about having sex with Lewis. From there authorities were alerted and an investigation began in January 2011.

While Michigan's age of consent is 16, the law doesn't apply when the sexual contact is between a teacher and a student. Then the student must be 18 or older.

Future trial and plea dates have not been set.

Lewis could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
