A southern California school district will shell out $2.25 million to a sex abuse victim of a teacher — who was impregnated by another student.

The settlement brings the total amount paid by Redlands Unified School District to Laura Whitehurst’s victims to $8.25 million since her arrest in 2013, the Southern California News Group reported.

The latest lawsuit was filed in 2021 by a former Redlands High School student who claimed Whitehurst preyed on him in 2007 and 2008, when he was just 14 years old, according to the plaintiff’s attorney.

Whitehurst later admitted to having sex with him as much as 15 times inside the San Bernadino classroom and at her apartment.

The English teacher and soccer coach pleaded guilty to unlawful sex with three former students, one of whom she shares a baby with.

She served six months in jail and registered as a sex offender in 2014, the same year she gave birth.

The school district last agreed in 2016 to pay another victim — the father of the teacher’s child — $6 million for the abuse he withstood.

Whitehurst gave birth after having sex with the student for a year, starting when he was just 16.

The boy claimed that Redlands Unified officials knew of his relationship with the teacher and failed to warn his family.
