REDLANDS, Calif. (AP) - Police have arrested a Southern California high school teacher two weeks after she allegedly gave birth to a student's baby. 

Redlands police spokesman Carl Baker says 28-year-old Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst was arrested Monday night for allegedly having unlawful sex with a 16-year-old. 

Officials at Citrus Valley High School in Redlands contacted police on Monday, acting on a tip from the boy's mother. 

Police say the sexual relationship began last summer and continued for nearly a year. The boy is now 17. 

Whitehurst gave birth to a child June 18. 

A telephone message left at the Whitehurst home was not immediately returned.
