KENT, Wash. (AP) -- A boy who fathered two children with his sixth-grade teacher testified Wednesday that she began seducing him by offering to remove an item of clothing for every question he answered correctly on a history test.
Vili Fualaau, 18, said he had a crush on Mary Kay Letourneau when he was 12 and she was a 34-year-old married mother of four teaching grade school in suburban Seattle.
"I thought she was hot," said Fualaau.
Fualaau and his mother, Soona Vili, have filed a $1 million civil suit against Highline School District and the Des Moines, Wash., police department, alleging they failed to protect him.
Letourneau is serving a prison sentence for child rape and is expected to testify by satellite.
Fualaau told the court that Letourneau made sexually suggestive remarks to him and said she would kiss him on the last day of school.
They had dinner and kissed in a parking lot one night in June 1996, and Fualaau testified that he later spent three consecutive nights at Letourneau's home before school ended that year. Her husband and four children were asleep in another part of the house.
Lawyers for the city and school district have said they could not have protected Fualaau because there was no way for them to know what was going on.
