A 43-year-old mother from Irvine was found guilty this week of a host of sex crimes involving two teenage boys.
Nicole Ethel McMillen was convicted on three felony counts of oral copulation of a minor under 16 and four felony counts of lewd acts on a child. The victims were 14 and 16 years old, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.
Evidence presented at trial showed McMillen had an ongoing sexual relationship with the 16-year-old boy for more than a year in 2005 and 2006, the district attorney's office said. And from Jan. 1 and Feb. 28, 2012, she had sexual contact with the 14-year-old, who had been over at her house to play with his friends.
McMillen, during the time of the assaults, worked with kindergarten-aged children part time at Peters Canyon Elementary School and was also a behavioral interventionist with the Tustin Unified School District.
