Law enforcement officials arrested a Taylorsville, Utah, dance instructor for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a 17-year-old student.

Amber Telford, 33, pleaded guilty on Tuesday, KSL reported. She was charged with felony unlawful sexual activity with a minor. Prosecutors on the case dismissed six identical charges against her.

Telford, a mother of three, was arrested in January. At the time of her arrest, police accused her of having sex with a boy under her tutelage from September to December 2014.

“She started by flirting with [the boy] and eventually began a sexual relationship with him that occurred at her home, her mother’s home and also in a vehicle belonging to Amber,” read a Salt Lake County Jail report.

The former dance instructor also reportedly took the teenager to a church parking lot to have sex with him. She "groomed" the boy by purchasing him clothes as well as paying for his trip to Disneyland for a dance competition, according to police.

The issue only came to light in November 2014 after Tellford’s estranged husband hired a private detective to investigate her. The detective reportedly caught the two in her studio.

Telford had filed for divorce from her husband in September 2014.

Her sentencing is scheduled for August 18.
