Julie Gay Correa, a former P.E. teacher and coach at Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School in Moraga, was sentenced to eight years in prison today for sex crimes she committed on a former student.
Correa could have received more than 100 years in prison, but she accepted a plea deal with the Attorney General’s Office, in which she pleaded no contest to four of the felony charges against her.
Correa had been living in Utah with her family at the time of her arrest.
The victim, Kristen Cunnane, who currently works as an associate head coach for the Cal women’s swim team, has been very active in the case, serving as a role model for other victims of sexual abuse who are afraid to come forward.
