Former Teacher Charged With Sex Crime Denied Parole
(AP) NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A former Tennessee teacher convicted of having sex with a 13-year-old student was denied a request for an earlier parole hearing.
Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle said in a ruling Thursday that the previous probation violation by Pamela Rogers was too extreme to qualify for an earlier hearing.
Her next parole hearing is scheduled for 2014.
Rogers was arrested in February 2005 and pleaded no contest to having sexual intercourse and oral sex with the student, who attended the school in McMinnville where she had taught physical education.
She struck a plea deal that allowed her to spend six months in jail along with seven years probation, but was ordered to serve out the sentence in prison for sending nude photos to the boy after she was released.
