A Tennessee teacher who was jailed last year for having sex with one of her 13-year-old students has been arrested again and is being held without bail for allegedly sending naked photos and sexually explicit messages to her victim, authorities say.
Pamela Rogers, 28, is accused of violating her probation conditions by contacting the teen, according to news reports. Last August, the former physical education teacher was sentenced to six months behind bars for the three-month affair she had had with the boy, the Tennessean newspaper reports. In February she was released on good behavior.
Despite being barred from contacting the boy, Rogers was arrested earlier this month on charges of violating those terms of her probation by creating a MySpace.com Web site and blog on which she had posted messages to him, authorities allege. She subsequently pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on bail in anticipation of a July hearing.
This week’s arrest stems from later charges that she contacted the boy by phone, e-mails and text messages and sent him explicit photos and videos of herself, according to court documents as reported by the Tennessean.
“These were videos of (the) defendant involved in sexual activity and she was nude in the pictures,” according to Rogers’s arrest warrant. “Defendant requested from victim that he send pictures and videos and phone records indicated she received same on her phone.”
Rogers’s jail term was part of an eight-year sentence. She was also ordered to surrender her teaching certificate and was prohibited from granting interviews or profiting from her story.
