Kelly Watson, a former special education teacher who admitted to having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student is pregnant with his child.
The 35-year-old teacher met the student at the New Haven Youth & Family Services, a residential and educational facility that treats boys ages 8 to 17 who have “emotional and behavioral challenges.”
On Wednesday Watson was sentenced to three years probation for sexually assaulting the student and one year in jail.
However, the judge is allowing the Watson to exit jail early for the birth of her child on April 5.
The judge also did not require Watson to register as a sex offender, citing that she was not in danger of re-offending.
Watson is also barred from working with youth in the future and was ordered to stay away from the teen unless she has to provide information on the pregnancy.
