A 59-year-old former Michigan teacher who authorities say had a sexual relationship with a then-16-year-old student in 2010 faces sentencing in two counties later this summer. The teen now is pregnant with his child.
A lawyer for ex-Saranac High School teacher Krag Sanford asked a Kent County judge on Tuesday for a delay in the sentencing, and Judge Paul Sullivan reset it for Aug. 14. Sanford pleaded no contest in a deal with prosecutors.
Sentencing in a related Ionia County case is July 31.
The Byron Township man was arrested this year after authorities said he had a sexual relationship with the teen. A letter presented earlier in court says he impregnated her this year.

    That teenager is now 18 and if she didn't want a child or a sexual relationship she should have said NO. She should have sought out the police and told them about it. Some of these teenagers are not these innocent little girls. She may have threatened the teacher.
