A Redlands high school teacher whose child was fathered by a teenage student was charged Monday with 41 felony counts of sexual intercourse and oral copulation in connection with three boys.
Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst, 28, was arrested last week on suspicion of having sex repeatedly with a student at Citrus Valley High School. She gave birth last month to a child fathered by the now 17-year-old student. After her arrest, two other former students came forward saying they had sex with her during her six-year tenure at Redlands Unified School District.
“Students represent the future of our communities and protecting them will continue to be my number one priority,” San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael Ramos said.
