Shackled and dressed in an orange jumpsuit, former teacher Stephanie Ragusa was teary-eyed Monday as she pleaded guilty to having sex with two underage students.
Ragusa, 31, faces up to 10 years in prison when she is sentenced on June 15.
The former middle school teacher pleaded guilty to three counts of lewd and lascivious battery in a March 2008 case involving a 14-year-old boy.
She also pleaded guilty to two counts of having unlawful sex with a minor in an April 2008 case involving a 16-year-old student.
Ragusa entered her guilty pleas as jury selection was to begin at her trial.
