IONIA, Mich. (AP) -- A letter presented in court says a 59-year-old former Michigan teacher who authorities say had a sexual relationship with a then-16-year-old girl in 2010 has impregnated her this year.
Former Saranac High teacher Krag Sanford appeared Monday in an Ionia courtroom for a hearing on two counts of distributing sexually explicit materials to a minor. He was arrested this year after authorities said he had a sexual relationship with the teen.
The Sentinel-Standard reports (http://bit.ly/JxGQtE ) the letter requested Sanford and the teen be allowed to be in contact because she is about eight weeks pregnant with his child. District Court Chief Judge Raymond Voet denied the request.
A message was left Tuesday morning with Sanford's lawyer.
Sanford also faces a charge in Kent County that's related to the case.
