Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst Arrested After Allegedly Giving Birth To Child Fathered By Student
Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst, a Southern California high school teacher, was arrested on unlawful sex charges after giving birth to a child fathered by a 16-year-old student on June 18.
Whitehurst, who worked at Citrus Valley High School in Redlands, allegedly had unlawful sex with a male student she had been advising, according to Redlands police spokesman Carl Baker. Law enforcement were led to Whitehurst by the student’s mother.
The affair between Whitehurst and the boy developed after they began a friendly relationship outside of school, reported CBS Los Angeles. Whitehurst’s intimate relationship with the boy, who is now 17, was ongoing for a year, police allege.
Redlands Unified School District Assistant Superintendent Sabine Robertson-Phillips said in a statement that the district was "recently made aware of allegations involving a high school student and teacher." It’s further been suggested that police have spoken with another high school student who could also have been victimized by Whitehurst.
Whitehurst has been put on leave from her teaching position in light of the recent arrest. She was released on $25,000 bail.
