A Natomas high school teacher has registered as a sex offender as part of a plea deal reached last week in Sacramento County Superior Court.

Rebekah Lee Cyr, 33, was an English and drama teacher at Inderkum High School when she was accused of inappropriate conduct with a 17-year-old male student. She was arrested in October 2012 and charged with annoying or molesting a child under 18 and making annoying phone calls, both misdemeanors.

On April 18, the molestation charge was dismissed when Cyr pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge of making annoying phone calls without disclosing her identity, according to Sacramento County District Attorney’s spokesperson Shelly Orio.

Cyr registered as a sex offender as a term of her 5-year grant of formal probation, Orio added.

Sacramento Police Department received a report Cyr acted inappropriately toward a student in September 2012. A month later investigators’ findings were forwarded to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s office and two warrants issued for her arrest. Cyr turned herself in to authorities.

Cyr has been on unpaid administrative leave with the Natomas Unified School District, according to Superintendent Chris Evans. Cyr has resigned or will resign from her Inderkum teaching position by the end of the week, said Evans.
