A FORMER teacher who has already served prison time for having sex with a 13-year-old student has been jailed for more than six years for violating her probation by sending the boy nude photos of herself.
When Pamela Rogers, 29, was released after serving 198 days in jail, she was under orders not to contact the student or his family. But authorities said that even after being charged with violating her probation in April, she continued talking with the boy and sending him text messages and sexually explicit images of herself.
"You have done everything except show this court that you wanted to rehabilitate yourself," Judge Bart Stanley said. He revoked Rogers' probation and ordered her to serve the rest of a seven-year prison sentence that had been largely suspended.
Rogers, who has been in jail since April, presented evidence in a hearing on Friday. A clinical psychologist said she was a sex addict. Rogers apologised tearfully.
Rogers worked as a physical education teacher at Centretown Elementary School, which the boy, now 14, attended. She was first arrested in February last year but pleaded no contest to charges of statutory rape and sexual battery by an authority figure. Records of the case said she had intercourse and oral sex with the student.
A grand jury issued a new indictment against Rogers, charging her with four counts of exploiting a minor.
