Jeez. Just read this on The Week


Mary Kay Letourneau, the former Washington middle school teacher who married a former student after being convicted of raping him, has died of cancer, her family confirmed in a statement Tuesday. She was 58. In 1997, the Seattle-area teacher was convicted of second-degree child rape of her former student, 12-year-old Vili Fualaau; she was 34 at the time. Letourneau was paroled in 1998 and prohibited from having any contact with Fualaau, but twice became pregnant with his children before he was 15. After her release, she was found with him in a car, and was returned to prison to serve the remainder of her seven-year sentence. Letourneau and Fualaau married in 2005, and divorced in 2019. She had four children from her first marriage and two with Fualaau
