Special Ed teacher sentenced for having sex with former student

SAN DIEGO — A high school Special Ed teacher was sentenced to a year in jail after admitting to having sex with one of her former students. She is even pregnant with his baby.

Kelly Watson, 34, says she is in love with her former teenaged student.

Police say Watson met the boy when he was a student in her class at a facility that serves boys with emotional and learning challenges.

"She wants to have a continuing relationship with him and raise this child as a family," said David Cohn, Watson's attorney.

The father says he is very much in love with Watson who will be released early to deliver and care for their child.

She has been ordered not to have any contact with minors, including the baby's father.
