A former McCamey teacher accused of having sex with a student will have to wait a little longer for her trial to start.

Pre-trial motions were supposed to begin on Wednesday for 32-year old Vanessa Zuniga, but they were pushed back until next month.

Zuniga turned herself in several months ago after allegations surfaced that she was having an improper relationship with a student.

If she's convicted, she could face up to 20 years in jail and up to a $10,000 dollar fine.
