Felony sexual battery by an authority figure

Pamela Rogers Turner
was a 27-year-old teacher and coach at Centertown Elementary School in McMinnville, TN. She was arrested in February, 2005 on charges of statutory rape, after allegations surfaced of an ongoing sexual relationship between herself and a 13-year-old student. In August of 2005, she pleaded no contest to charges of sexual battery by an authority figure, part of a plea deal with the prosecution. She was sentenced to nine months in prison, part of an eight-year suspended sentence. However, she was arrested again in April, 2006, for sending the same student sexual pictures and videos of herself, as well as contacting him through blogs and social networks. A website leaked one of the videos to the Internet, which quickly drew greater interest to the case. In response, Circuit Judge Bart Stanley revoked Turners probation and ordered her to serve the remaining seven years of her sentence in state prison. Two more years were tacked on to her sentence in January, 2007, after she pleaded guilty to sending naked pictures of herself to the student.
