The older woman/younger man relationship is clearly here to stay and I personally am all for it…when the young man involved IS A MATURE ADULT WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING!!!!
The number of women sexually exploiting their under-aged students is reaching alarming proportions. And to make matters worse, a good number of these women are teachers! Teachers are supposed to be second only to ones parents. For a better part of our lives, those of us who obtain formal education spend almost as much time with our teachers as we do with our parents, if not more. So when a person in such a position of authority takes advantage of that to ruin a child’s life by introducing them to sex at the wrong time you can’t help wondering, what on earth is going on.
Documented below is another such incident, again in America and all I can think is, I wonder how much of this is going on, unnoticed in Nigeria.
A 28-year-old teacher from Southern California has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old high student after police say she gave birth to a baby he had fathered.
Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst was taken into custody just before 9pm Monday after being questioned at her Redlands home.
The 28-year-old, who teaches 10th-grade English at Citrus Valley High School, faces a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. She was released from jail after posting $25,000 Monday night.
‘Bad teacher’: Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst, 28, pictured left in 2013 yearbook photo, was arrested for allegedly having sex with her 16-year-old high student after police say she gave birth to a baby he had fathered
According to the Redlands Police Department, Whitehurst’s underage lover was 16 years old during their year-long relationship, which allegedly started last summer.
The mother of the alleged victim, who is now 17 years ago, somehow became aware of the affair between her son and his teacher and notified the Redlands United School District, which in turn contacted police.
The 28-year-old woman gave birth to a child June 18, and police say her former student is the father.
Since her arrest Monday evening, Whitehurst had been placed on administrative leave.
‘Nothing is as important to us as the safety of our students and the District takes this arrest very seriously. We are fully cooperating with police in their investigation of this matter,’ Assistant School Superintendent Sabine Robertson-Phillips said.
The educator graduated from Redlands East Valley High School and taught English to sophomores at Citrus Valley, where she was also a Link Crew adviser and a Compact Careers Club adviser, according to reporting from The Redlands Daily Facts.
In 2010, Whitehurst was also an assistant soccer coach. She previously was a volunteer soccer coach for American Youth Soccer Organization in Redlands.
The news blog PE.com reported that Whitehurst’s father, Dale Whitehurst, has served as principal of Brywn Mawr Elementary and Moore Middle schools in Redlands.
He also worked as assistant principal at Redlands Easy Valley high School.
