Teacher pleads guilty after having baby with student she adopted

From the “You Can’t Believe This department:

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.
