Calif. ex-teacher pleads guilty to sex with teen

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A former Southern California teacher who allegedly gave birth to her student's baby has pleaded guilty to having sex with a minor and she'll be sentenced to a year in jail.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says 28-year-old Laura Whitehurst on Wednesday entered guilty pleas to six of 41 charges against her. She had faced up to 29 years in prison if convicted on all counts.

Whitehurst is a former teacher at Citrus Valley High School in Redlands. Prosecutors contend that she began a sexual affair with a student last summer when he was 16. She gave birth last month.

She also was accused of having sex several years ago with two students, who are now adults.
