Amy Beck, the Burbank middle school teacher who was arrested for having sex with a 14-year-old boy, said through her attorney that she turned herself in because she felt "guilt-ridden and remorseful" and "couldn't live with what she did," the LA Times is reporting. Attorney Michael Williamson said he was unsure why she did what she did, but said he doesn't believe she had relationships with any other students. Beck, a mother of three and wife to an LAPD officer, pleaded no contest Thursday morning to the charges against her.
