SEATTLE, Wash. -

Former teacher Mary Kay Letourneau,  who made headlines after she had sex with her 12-year-old student, has sorted out some legal trouble involving a suspended driver's license.

KOMO-TV reports that she was back in a King County courtroom Thursday and brought proof that she has gotten her license renewed.  The judge reduced her penalty to a $124 fine.

She was arrested and briefly jailed earlier this month in the case.

The suburban Seattle teacher became tabloid fodder in the 1990s when she was convicted of raping the sixth-grade boy when she was 34. She served a prison sentence and then married her former student, Vili Fualaau, in 2005 when he was 22.
