Norfolk, Va. - The former Virginia Beach Schools employee who slept with a teenage student will receive no jail time for her crime in Norfolk.

Perez was arrested in 2013 after the 15-year-old Renaissance Academy student's mother went to police after finding out about the affair. It was discovered that Perez slept with the student in both Virginia Beach and Norfolk.

At the time, Perez was employed as an assistant security guard at Renaissance Academy.

In late 2013, Perez pleaded guilty in both cities to two counts of indecent liberties by a custodian.

Sentencing in both cities was delayed due to various setbacks and with judges in each city saying they needed more time and information to render a decision.

In March of 2014 in Norfolk, Perez was sentenced to two years (one year for each count) with all but seven months suspended. However, the judge gave a list of requirements to meet during the course of a year. If she was able to meet those requirements, she would not have to serve the seven months.

Perez was required to continue counseling, stay away from the student and his family, and register as a sex offender.

On Friday, a judge found that Perez met all the requirements over the last year and ultimately decided she will serve no jail time for her Norfolk charges.

Perez has not yet been sentenced for her charges in Virginia Beach. She's scheduled to appear for a sentence hearing there on May 18th.
