PIX11– The teacher who was allegedly fired for having premarital sex is suing her former employer.

Teri James has enlisted the help of Gloria Allred to sue San Diego Christian College.

James says even though she signed a contract agreeing not to have premarital sex, she never thought anything would happen if she did.

Last fall she was pulled into her supervisors office and asked if she was pregnant.

Once she admitted to it she was let go on the spot.

Not only was she fired but she says the school offered her position to her then-fiance, now husband, ignoring the fact that he’d had sex before getting married as well.

She believes she deserves compensation for the way she was treated the humiliation she suffered.
