SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A former Southern California teacher who had her student's baby has been released from jail.
The San Bernardino Sun says 29-year-old Laura Whitehurst was released this week with more than six months left on her one year sentence.
She must register as a sex offender within five days and wear a GPS tracking device.
Whitehurst is a former teacher at Citrus Valley High School in Redlands. Prosecutors say she began an affair with a student in 2012. She gave birth last July.
The father, who's now 18, told a judge she robbed him of his innocence.
Under a plea deal, Whitehurst pleaded guilty to having unlawful sex with the teen and with two former students who are now adults.
Whitehurst's parents are caring for the child.
