The man who married his former sixth-grade teacher after she was jailed for raping him has filed for legal separation from her…

King County court records show 33-year-old Vili Fualaau asked the court for a legal separation from 55-year-old Mary Kay Letourneau on May 9.

Letourneau is a former suburban Seattle teacher who became tabloid fodder when she was convicted in 1997 of raping the then 12-year-old Fualaau. She was 34 and a married mother of four when the relationship began.

She became pregnant with their first daughter when Fualaau was 13-years-old. After giving birth, she received a six month jail sentence which was commuted to three months on condition that she wouldn’t have contact with Fualaau again. However, they were caught having sex in a car shortly after she was released from prison. She became pregnant with their second daughter and was sent back to prison for seven years.

The couple married on May 20, 2005, in Woodinville, Washington, after she served her sentence for child rape.
