ITALY: Teacher arrested after having baby with underage student

A woman, aged 30, was arrested in Prato, Italy after she had sexual relations with a 14-year-old boy which resulted in her having a baby with him.

The relationship between the woman and the teenager appears to have started during private lessons she was giving in her spare time.

The sexual relationship was proved through DNA tests which showed that the baby was not her husband’s, but that of the boy she was teaching. It is being reported that the woman also has another son, aged 11.

The case came to light when the teenager, now 15, confided to his parents about what was happening during the private lessons.

This case has caused an uproar in Italy and is being discussed in various current affairs programmes.
