A former physical education teacher at San Jose’s Mt. Pleasant High School was sentenced Tuesday to six months in jail for molesting a
17-year-old female student. Rita Brum, 24, was also sentenced to three years of formal probation, meaning she must meet regularly with a probation officer, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office. San Jose police began investigating Brum in January after
receiving a call alleging that she had molested a student. A subsequent investigation uncovered an inappropriate sexual relationship that took place over several months between Brum and a 17-year-old girl. Brum was arrested Feb. 26 and charged with sexual penetration of a person younger than 18.
