REDLANDS, Calif., July 3 (UPI) -- A 28-year-old teacher in California was placed on administrative leave after she gave birth to a baby fathered by one of her students, police said.

Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst was arrested Monday for her alleged sexual relationship last summer with the teen who was 16 at the time, The (Riverside, Calif.) Press-Enterprise reported Tuesday. Police confirmed the teen is the father of the baby born June 18.

Whitehurst was released on $25,000 bail Monday evening, the newspaper said. Charges have not been filed.

The Citrus Valley High School teacher served as an adviser for a school organization in which the student participated, said Redlands police spokesman Carl Baker.

The two began talking outside school and eventually met at her home, he added.

The boy's mother contacted the school district Monday after police said the teen allegedly told his mother about the baby.

Whitehurst is the third teacher in a year accused of a sexual relationship with a student in the Inland Empire metropolitan area of California, which includes Riverside, San Bernadino and Ontario, the newspaper said.
