Kelly Watson, a 35-year-old teacher who had sex with her 17-year-old special needs student, says that she is carrying his baby (video below).
Watson met the unidentified boy while she was his teacher at New Haven Youth and Family Services in Los Angeles. The relationship began in January of 2012, when the boy was 16, after he left the facility.
According to theSan Diego Union-Tribune, Watson pleaded guilty in November to a felony charge of unlawful sex with a minor. She was ordered jailed on Wednesday, but will be allowed to get out in April to give birth. Watson will be on probation for three years.
Deputy District Attorney Mary Ellen Barrett said the teen did not want Watson to go to jail. "He is very much in love with her and is looking forward to the baby."
Judge Laura Halgren banned Watson from working with minors in the future and ordered her to stay away from the teen, though he can attend the baby’s birth. Watson was not placed on the state sex offender registry.
