REDLANDS, Calif. - A Southern California man claims he also had teenage sex with a teacher who allegedly had a baby by a 16-year-old student.
Twenty-three-year-old Michael Cooper tells KABC-TV that he was a 17-year-old junior in Laura Whitehurst's English class at Redlands High School when they began a sexual relationship in 2007. He says it lasted nearly a year.
The Redlands Daily Facts says a police report has been made and an investigator will try to verify the account.
Whitehurst, who's 28, was arrested Monday on suspicion of having unlawful sex with a Citrus Valley High School student, beginning when he was 16.
Whitehurst is out on bail but couldn't immediately be reached for comment. A Redlands phone number for her has been disconnected.
