Ramirez told Dr. Phil she didn't feel as though they were doing anything wrong or illegal because the relationship was not taking place on school grounds.
She and the student ended up arranging a date at her house and they were intimate. The student recorded it and shared the video with several other students, which eventually led to school officials finding out about the tryst. Ramirez said she had no knowledge of the event.

In exchange for the plea, Ramirez received seven years of probation and had to surrender her teaching license.
