Former California high school student wins $6 million settlement after..
impregnating his teacher! (article below)
A former California high school student who impregnated his teacher has walked away with a $6 million settlement from the school district — reportedly one of the largest single-victim sex abuse settlements ever from a public agency.
The one-time pupil at Citrus Valley High School in Redlands, who is now 21, received the whopping payment Friday, more than three years after the arrest of his former teacher and lover, Laura Whitehurst.
“The size of this settlement represents the gravity of the damage done to this young victim and his family and it also highlights the extreme malfeasance and neglect by school officials who turned a blind eye to the criminal conduct of a teacher and failed to protect a student,” Vince Finaldi, an attorney for the student, told The Los Angeles Times.
But through the settlement, the district admits no wrongdoing, and places all blame on the teen-loving teacher.
Houston teacher accused of sex with student violated curfew Whitehurst, a former AP English teacher, was slapped with 41 felony sex assault charges for her relationship with this student and two others, all of whom were under 18 at the time.
The student who won the $6 million settlement said his sexual relationship with Whitehurst started in 2012, when he was 16, and continued for about a year. The two regularly had sex at her apartment, and Whitehurst gave birth to their child in June 2013 — while the boy was still in school.
Whitehurst was arrested one month later and faced up to 29 years behind bars. In court proceedings, the student told a judge he felt “sick to my stomach” from the “manipulation” he received from his teacher.
As part of a plea deal, Whitehurst was sentenced to one year in jail and released after only four months.
Ex-Queens teacher allegedly tried luring teen for sex Whitehurst, 29, is now a registered sex offender — and shares custody of the child with her former student.
The student’s attorneys accused the school of ignoring warning signs about the relationship — including a photo of Whitehurst and the student together in a birthing suite. The school district did not start investigating their illicit romance until six weeks after the baby’s birth.
Through the settlement, no one else in the district will face criminal charges for the case.
What a load of shit, why does some dumbfuck get 6 million dollars for raping his teacher when the schools are having enough trouble fighting for funding to get teachers who don't sexually harass their students. Holy fuck this unfathomable.
