Ex-teacher Mary Kay Letourneau jailed in SeattleJanuary 6, 2014 @ 6:30 pm
SEATTLE (AP) - Former teacher Mary Kay Letourneau (leh-TUR'-noh), who made headlines after she had sex with her 12-year-old student, has been arrested and briefly jailed in an unrelated Seattle-area case.
KIRO reports ( http://bit.ly/JDVrHZ) she was arrested Sunday night and booked into the King County Jail early Monday for failing to appear in court for a suspended driver's license case. The jail register showed she was released Monday afternoon.
The suburban Seattle teacher became tabloid fodder in the 1990s when she was convicted of raping the sixth-grade boy when she was 34. She served a prison sentence and then married her former student, Vili Fualaau (VEE'-lee foo-lah-OW'), in 2005 when he was 22.
