Kristen Cunnane was granted $1.5 million in restitution by a judge Friday for the crimes committed against her by her former Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School teacher.
Cunnane’s former P.E. teacher,┬áJulie Correa, pleaded no contest to four charges against her during the criminal trial last year. Correa had been charged with 23 total felony sex crimes for her sexual abuse of Cunnane over a four-year period beginning in 1996. Correa was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Although Cunnane was granted $1.5 million in restitution, she is unlikely to see anywhere near that amount due to Correa’s prison sentence and financial standing. Cunnane has received the first two checks totaling just $24 from┬áthe Department of Corrections on behalf of Correa.
