Her attorney, former neighbor, and friend David Gehrke, said that she was "emotionally and physically abused by her husband" during the marriage, and twice "went to the hospital for treatment, and police were called," although no charges were ever filed. Letourneau later taught a sixth-grade class in which Fualaau was also a student.
Because of her notoriety, Letourneau was unpopular with other inmates, "sassed guards and balked at work" and, reportedly as punishment for this, spent "18 of her first 24 months" in solitary confinement.
