Redlands, CA (The Weekly Vice) - Laura Whitehurst, a 28-year-old English teacher at Citrus Valley High School, was jailed Monday after she allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old student, became pregnant by him and delivered his child.
According to police, an investigation was launched Monday after the victim's mother contacted school administrators and told them that her son was the father of Whitehursts' newborn child.
Whitehurst gave birth to the child on June 18.
Investigators say Whitehurst and the student began a year-long sexual relationship last summer when the student was 16.
"One thing led to another, and he ended up at (Whitehurst's) residence, and it's been going on, going for approximately one year now," said Redlands Police spokesman Shawn Ryan.
Whitehurst was booked into jail and charged with suspicion of having unlawful intercourse with an underage student.
