Kevin Patrick Kirkland, a 56-year-old math teacher at Redlands High School has been arrested on suspicion of engaging in sexual acts with a young girl from the age of 16 until she reached 18. Kirkland has been arrested and is set to appear in a San Bernardino County Court on Monday.
This is only the latest of several recent incidents of child molestation by teachers within the Redlands Unified School District. Laura Whitehurst had previously been convicted of engaging in sexual acts with multiple male students, and, in one instance, becoming pregnant with the young boy's child. The District had also previously paid out $505,000.00 to settle allegations that a Redlands East Valley High teacher, Megan Kelly, had engaged in a sexual relationship with a female student.
