Under an agreement with prosecutors, the former McClatchy High School teacher pleaded guilty Wednesday to four counts of unlawful sex with a minor.
The plea came on the day De Barraicua was to go on trial for having sex with a 16-year-old student four times between Sept. 1 last year and Feb. 18. Sacramento police arrested De Barraicua after finding her parked with the student behind an elementary school.
She told police she first had sex with the boy at her home and three other times in her car.
Prosecutors said the case was aggravated by the fact that De Barraicua took advantage of her vulnerable student.
She declined to talk with reporters, but her lawyer said she was glad it was over.
"She wants to take responsibility for what she did," said attorney Philips Cozens.
