Ms. Beck resigned from Jordan Middle School on Friday after about 10 years of teaching English and Social Science at the school.
Due to the age of the child, no details have been released about who Beck is accused of having sex with, apart from his age, but it is being reported that the sexual relationship took place over six months, from March to September 2009.
"She said she had sexual relations with one of her students," said Burbank police Sgt. Robert Quesada.
Police have reportedly spoken to the boy and he did not deny that the affair took place and confirmed that Amy Beck was the teacher who took part in the sexual relationship. The student no longer attends Jordan Middle School but it is not known if he still goes to school in Burbank according to the Burbank Leader.
Ms. Beck could receive up to seven years in prison if she is convicted. She is being held on a $400,000 bail and is due to be arraigned Wednesday at the Superior Court in Burbank.
Police are still enquiring about information in the case, so they are asking anyone who knows anything about the alleged sexual affair to call the Burbank police department Detective Wally Schilling at (818) 238-3254.
