Mary Kay Letourneau, who received national infamy after being convicted of raping her student and then later marrying him, has died at age 58, her attorney confirmed to KING 5 news.
Letourneau died of stage 4 cancer, said her attorney David Gerke, who represented her on the case.
In 1996, Letourneau, a sixth-grade teacher at Shorewood Elementary in Burien, was caught having sexual relations with Vili Fualaau, who was her student. Fualaau was 12-years-old at the time.
The two got married in 2005 just after Letourneau was released from a seven-year prison sentence for having sex with a minor. Fualaau filed for separation in 2017, and the divorce was finalized last year.
The couple had two children together, and Letourneau had children from a previous marriage.
