FARMINGTON -- One of the two former junior high school teachers accused of having sex with a student appeared in court Tuesday. Linda Nef has been in the mist of negotiations with prosecutors, but there was no plea made.

During Tuesday's hearing, Nef's attorney asked the judge for more time. Judge Rodney Page begrudgingly agreed, but said that a one week continuance was all he would allow.

"We're close. We still need to work out a few details," Nef's attorney, Sean Druyon, told reporters outside of court.

Nef is due back in court on June 16. If she and prosecutors have not agreed on a plea deal, her case will go to trial.

The 46-year-old former teacher is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old student while she was a teacher at Bountiful Junior High School. It's alleged that her relationship with the boy lasted from December 2007 until February 2008.

The other teacher accused of having sex with the same student after Nef, is scheduled to be back in court on June 29. Valynne Bowers has also been in plea negotiations, so it's possible she will have a plea deal at that time.
