Fualaau asks court to lift no-contact order By Christine Clarridge and Michael Ko Seattle Times staff reporter Within hours of Mary K. Letourneau's release from prison for having sex with a student, the young man petitioned the court to lift the lifetime no-contact order imposed on her when she was convicted in 1997. In the motion, Vili Fualaau's attorneys argue that the no-contact order was put in place to protect a minor but no longer serves a purpose. "Mr. Fualaau is now 21 years old," the three-page document says. "He does not fear Mary K. Letourneau." The King County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing the motion, spokesman Dan Donohoe said, and had not decided whether to agree to it or request a hearing before a judge. Friends and lawyers have speculated that Letourneau's main goals upon her release would include reconnecting with both children she had with Fualaau. She has been allowed frequent supervised visits with the two girls, now 7 and 5, who are being raised by Fualaau's mother. --->> http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2001997181_letourneau05m.html I can't imagine that the contact ban can be continued since both parties are now adults and consenting. This is the final paragraph--a case I hadn't been aware of: Another local (Seattle) teacher, Mark Blilie, was convicted of rape after a sexual relationship with a student. He was a 39-year-old married teacher at Kirkland Junior High School when 13-year-old Toni Pala was his student. After he served more than three years for the crime, Pala asked the court in 2000 to lift the no-contact order, and a short while later the two were married.
