Two women were arrested on Thursday for allegedly having sex with teenage boys, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies say Tali Sisco and Tina Pourani engaged in sexual intercourse with 15 and 16-year-old boys.
On April 7, the sheriff’s office launched a criminal investigation into a series of alleged relationships between the suspects and several boys attending a local high school.
Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith told KRON4’s Justine Waldman there are three victims and possibly a fourth.
Investigators determined both suspects were 23 years old at the time of the sexual encounters with the teens.
According to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, Sisco and Pourani are self-described best friends.
Deputies said new evidence suggests the suspects bragged about having sex with underage boys and called themselves “sexual deviants.”
Sisco was a student-teacher at Bernal Middle School at the time the investigation began.
The Oak Grove School District released the following statement:
Upon notification of the investigation of alleged misconduct by Ms. Sisco, Oak Grove School District immediately prohibited her from continuing her student teaching in our District through Santa Clara University. While we did not know the validity of the claims at that time, our priority was to protect our students.
Investigators do not believe there are any victims from Bernal Middle School. Furthermore, the identified victims have no connection to the school.
On Thursday morning Sisco was arrested at her home on multiple criminal charges.
The charges included multiple counts of Oral Copulation of a Minor, multiple counts of Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a Minor, Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, and Arranging a Meeting with a Minor to Commit a Sex Offense.
At the same time, Tina Pourani was arrested at her home in San Jose. She was also booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on charges of Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a Minor and Oral Copulation of a Minor.
