A student of California, won a large amount of money after having sex with his teacher and getting her pregnant.
Teacher Laura Whitehurst was 24 when she had a sexual relationship with her 16-year-old student.
Dipsite telling the boy that she cannot conceive, the teacher became pregnant by him.
The teacher had a year-long relationship with the boy and gave birth to his daughter when he was just 17 years old.
The student, who is now 21, sued the school district, claiming that they knew about the affair and they “turned a blind eye,” allowing the teacher to continue having sex with him.
Vince Finaldi, an attorney for the student, said that the school did not inform the student’s family or law enforcement over the sexual abuse of the student.
The Redlands Unified School District officials agreed to settle the lawsuit for $6 million.
However, they did not admit to any wrongdoing by settling the lawsuit and they placed the entire blame on Whitehurst.
Whitehurst was arrested over the incident and she was charged with 41 felony counts of having sex with a minor and oral copulation with a person under the age of 18.
She pleaded guilty to six of the 41 charges in a plea deal. She was sentenced to one year in county jail and five years of probation.
The student, who was present at the birth, has shared custody of the baby. However, a court-ordered representative facilitates the custody exchanges as there is a no-contact order between the teacher and her daughter’s father.
