California teacher who pleaded guilty to having sex with her 17-year-old former student is pregnant with the teenager's baby, prosecutors said in court Wednesday.
Kelly Watson, 34, was sentenced to probation on Wednesday for sexually assaulting the teenage male student she met in her class at the New Haven residential school in Vista, Calif. Watson may also serve some jail time.
Last year, sex crimes detectives received a tip about possible inappropriate sexual conduct between Watson and her former student. After investigating, detectives determined the pair dated several months ago.
The school where Watson worked "serves adolescent boys with emotional and learning challenges," according to a statement issued by New Haven last year.
Watson worked as the boy's teacher for several semesters between September 2010 to August 2011.
