Ex-teacher Mary Kay Letourneau jailed in Seattle

SEATTLE (AP) - January 6, 2014

KIRO reports 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. She was held with bail set at $5,000.

The Burien 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 married her former student, Vili Fualaau, in 2005 when he was 22.
