ST. CLOUD, Fla., June 9 (UPI) — A Florida teacher’s lawsuit against her old school says she was fired because administrators found out her baby was conceived before her wedding.
Jarretta Hamilton, a former fourth-grade teacher at Southland Christian School in St. Cloud, said she approached administrators in April 2009, shortly after her wedding, to tell them she was pregnant and request maternity leave for the coming fall, WKMG-TV, Orlando, reported Wednesday.
“That’s when the question was posed to her, ‘Did you conceive prior to marriage?'” said Edward Gay, Hamilton’s lawyer.
He said Hamilton told administrators the truth, the baby was conceived about three weeks before the wedding, and she was fired one week later without being allowed to finish the school year.
