They celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in 2015.

Mary Kay Letourneau is the former schoolteacher who plead guilty to two counts of felony second-degree rape of a child, her 12-year-old student, Vili Fualaau. While awaiting sentencing, she gave birth to Fualuaa’s child. Her plea agreement called for six months in jail, with three months suspended, and no contact with Fualaau for life. The case gained national attention.

One month after her three months in jail, Letourneau was caught by police in a car with Fualaau.
