California school district to pay $2.25M to settle suit involving teacher who had student's baby

  • The Redlands Unified School District in Southern California will pay $2.25 million to settle a lawsuit involving a teacher, Laura Whitehurst, who became pregnant by one of the students she was accused of sexually abusing. This brings the total amount paid by the district to Whitehurst's victims to $8.25 million. Whitehurst admitted to having sex with the student multiple times in her classroom and apartment.
  • The latest lawsuit, filed in 2021, was brought by another former student who alleged he was preyed upon and sexually abused by Whitehurst at Redlands High School in 2007-2008 when he was 14 years old.
  • In a previous lawsuit, the student who fathered Whitehurst's child claimed that the school officials knew about their relationship but failed to inform his family. Whitehurst, who served as an English teacher and soccer coach, pleaded guilty to unlawful sex with three former students and served six months in jail as a registered sex offender.
