My referrer logs tell me that another teacher arrested for having sex with an underage student is in the news again. This time it’s Pamela Rogers Turner. From Nashville’s NewsChannel 5:
Pamela Rogers was back in court Wednesday, charged with violating seven terms of her probation.
Prosecutors said Rogers wasn’t allowed to use the Internet or have any contact with the victim’s family.
Investigators believe Rogers broke both of those rules.
Rogers was released on bond Wednesday but will be back in court in July.
If Rogers is found guilty on these charges, she may have to serve more jail time.
Part of Roger’s plea agreement ordered her not to use the Internet.
…Authorities said Rogers used a popular interactive Web site called Myspace.com to communicate with the victim’s 17-year-old sister.
The court ordered her not to contact the victim or his family and to not use the Internet.
Here’s the creepy part. On her alleged MySpace page (cached at BadJocks) she leaves this message for her former lover
- TO NUMBER 32….. “My Plans are Your Plans….” “Nothing’s Changed….” “Say it…..say it….” Always is the word, Baby, always. Listen to “Far Away” by Nickleback…. that’s for you. But, you know… I hate hearing something that is exactly the opposite of what you have said. I hate lies. Honesty is the biggest, most important trait in people. When I find out that I have been lied to and deceived, after all the sacrifices I have made, it makes me wanna…..
Later, in another section of the page, she says this:
- Also, I am not looking for a boyfriend, I am happily single and I went through a divorce about a year ago, so I am not looking for anyone…. I still do believe in LOVE, though… ;p I just think that I will wait for about 3 years before I fall into that….. Always, PJ
If the page is really hers, which seems likely given the volume of photos shown in the frontpage slideshow, it sure looks like Rogers is heading down the trail blazed by Mary Kay Letourneau. Perhaps, instead of sending her back to jail, authorities should mandate psychiatric care…
