Cross allegedly told his mom that she wanted to “mentor” him and was granted partial custody, according to authorities.
Under the court-approved arrangement, Cross and the teen moved in together to her Tallmadge home, officials said.
In June 2015, the boy’s mother filed a police complaint about the alleged affair. No charges, however, were filed until authorities learned that Cross gave birth to the teen’s baby in December 2015.
A former teacher in Ohio pleaded guilty to charges stemming from giving birth to her student-turned-foster son’s baby.
Laura Lynn Cross, 37, appeared in court Friday on sexual battery charges in connection with a three-year relationship with the male teenager, the Beacon Journal reported.
Prosecutors alleged that she and the then-16-year-old allegedly became sexually involved in 2013 while he was a freshman at Buchtel High School.
Their relationship reportedly became more complicated in 2015 when the English teacher resigned from the school and asked his mother to be his legal guardian.
