Teacher ‘Who Had Sex With Female Student’ Is Banned From Seeing Her Own Children
A married teacher has been banned from seeing her own children after she allegedly had sex with one of her teenage students.
Laura Garrigus, 30, is said by police to have had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student that went on for several months.
Following her arrest, the mum-of-three resigned from her job at the Cumberland International Early College in North Carolina.
She has also been banned from having any contact with children under the age of 18 – that includes her two sons and one daughter.
After being informed of the ban, an emotional Garrigus, asked the judge: “Not even my own children?”.
Judge Cheri-Siler-Mack replied: “You will not be around any child under age 18.”
Garrigus was arrested after the girl she allegedly slept with went to police in December 2015 and confessed to the consensual relationship.
State law makes it illegal for teachers and students to be in relationships and Garrigus was charged with four counts of taking indecent liberties with a student and two counts of sexual offence with a student.
