A former teacher claims she was fired after admitting that she conceived a child several weeks before marrying the baby’s father.
Jaretta Hamilton was fired by St. Cloud, Florida’s Southland Christian School after asking for maternity leave.
She says when she made the request her boss asked if the child had been conceived before she was married.
Principal Jon Ennis says Hamilton committed an immoral act and that he does not regret the decision.
Hamilton is now suing the school.
Her attorney points out that there was nothing in the school’s personal conduct policy barring sex out of wedlock.
