REPORT: Mary Kay Letourneau back in news for driving with suspended license
Former Shorewood Elementary School teacher Mary Kay Letourneau – a registered sex offender known for her affair with (and eventual marriage to) 12-year-old student Vili Fualaau – resolved a driving charge Thursday (Jan. 23) and was ordered to pay a $124 fine, according to the Seattle P-I.
Letourneau, 51, was back in the news recently for being arrested for driving with a suspended license on Jan. 6.
That charge stemmed from being pulled over in January 2013, when she was found to have a suspended driver’s license for unpaid traffic tickets.
As many locals will recall, Letourneau was in prison from 1997 to 2004 for having sex with Vili Fualaau, a 12-year old, 6th grade student at Shorewood Elementary School in Burien where she worked. She was 34 at the time, and married with four children.
She married Fualaau in 2005, and the couple currently lives with their two children in Normandy Park.
In 2009, Letourneau hosted a “Hot for Teacher” night at a Seattle bar while her husband worked as a DJ.
