2 more claim underage sex with Redlands teacher Laura Whitehurst

Whitehurst allegedly had student's baby

REDLANDS, Calif. - Investigators say two more victims have come forward to say they had underage sex with a Southern California teacher who allegedly had a baby fathered by a 16-year-old student.

Redlands police spokesman Carl Baker said Wednesday that the 22-year-old and 20-year-old men were both students Redlands High School when teacher Laura Whitehurst began sexual relationships with them.

Whitehurst, 28, was arrested Monday on suspicion of having unlawful sex with a Citrus Valley High School student, beginning when he was 16. He's now 17.

The 22-year-old man says he had sex with Whitehurst as a junior, and a 20-year-old says they were together when he was a freshman. Their alleged relationships overlapped, in 2007 and 2008.

Whitehurst is out on bail. A Redlands phone number for her has been disconnected.
