(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested and charged with having unlawful relations related charges after she gave birth to a baby, who was allegedly fathered by one of her students, according to police reports in California.
Redlands Police said that the high school teacher in Southern California was arrested on unlawful sex charges two weeks after giving birth to a baby, who apparently was fathered by a student.
Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst, 28, was arrested Monday night for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old, Redlands Police spokesperson Carl Baker said. She was a personal advisor to the boy.
Officials of Citrus Valley High School in Redlands contacted police on Monday, following a tip they received from the boy's mother.
The sexual relationship began last summer and continued for nearly a year, police said. The child is now 17-years-old.
Whitehurst gave birth to a boy two weeks ago.
In a statement, the Redlands Unified School District Assistant Superintendent Sabine Robertson-Phillips said that they were "somewhat aware of the allegations involving a student from school and the teacher."
The police were notified immediately and Whitehurst was placed on leave, Robertson-Phillips said.
