A Californian student who got his sex-crazed teacher pregnant has just been awarded a record £4.5 million in compensation.
When the student, known only as John BB Doe, was just 16-years-old, he began a year long relationship with his English teacher, Laura Whitehurst, reports the Mirror.
The teacher student couple used to meet regularly for unprotected sex at Laura’s flat however relatively quickly she found out she was pregnant with John’s baby.
Laura claimed it was a miracle as she didn’t think she was able to conceive, however the high of the miracle quickly came to an end when John’s mum told the school about her son’s baby with one of their teachers.
The teacher, from Citrus Valley High School, Redlands, was sentenced to 29 years imprisonment on 41 sex charges, however she was able to get out of prison after just one-year.
John appealed for compensation claiming that other teachers at the school knew about their sexual relationship but simply turned a blind eye and it seems he’s telling truth now an education authority is paying him $6 million dollars.
The lawyer who led the case, Vince Finaldi, said:
That number didn’t get there by accident.
The evidence we were able to deduce against the district of its knowledge that this was going on and its complicity was so voluminous, they had no choice but to settle the case. It was that bad.
Apparently, John and Laura now share custody of the child.
When Laura was sentenced to 29-years she was also accused of having sex with two other students.
One of the students claimed that she had given him a blowjob in her classroom when he was just 14-years-old.
Hopefully the compensation will somewhat ease the pain for the former student.
