Teri James, a former employee of San Diego Christian College, has hired Gloria Allred to sue the school for allegedly firing her for engaging in premarital sex.
James told The Today Show that she did sign a contract stipulating she would not take part in "sexually immoral behavior including premarital sex."
However, "I needed a job in this economy and so I never thought that anything would happen," the 29-year old explained.
James said she was subsequently embarrassed called into her supervisor's office last year and asked if she was pregnant. Upon giving confirmation, she was fired.
Oddly enough, James assert the college later offered a position to her now-husband, even though officials were aware he had sex before getting married, as well.
During a news conference this week, James said she felt she was treated unfairly:
"I was unmarried, pregnant and they took away my livelihood."
