A Redlands high school teacher accused of having sex with a student who fathered her child was arrested again Monday.

Since her original arrest on July 1, two more male victims came forward to claim they had sexual contact with Whitehurst while they were minors.

Whitehurst is charged with 41 felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and oral copulation of a person under 18. If convicted as charged, she could face a maximum sentence of up to 29 years in state prison.
