Still haven't finalized Memorial Day weekend plans? If in the Seattle vicinity, there's always "Hot Teacher Night" at the Fuel Sports Eats & Beats bar, featuring that head of the class blast from the past, Mary Kay Letourneau – described by ABC Seattle affiliate WJBF-TV on Friday as "the teacher convicted of raping one of her students."
Letourneau, now 47, first met pupil Vili Fualaa, now 26, when he was in the second grade. Their relationship became physical when he was 12 and she was 34, which resulted in Letourneau's receiving a 7½-year prison sentence. She was released in 2004 and, a year later, the two married.
