Tennessee Supreme Court Won't Hear Teacher Sex Case

Posted:

NASHVILLE (AP) - A former Tennessee elementary school teacher who was sentenced to prison for repeatedly contacting a student she had a sexual relationship with won't be getting out of prison early.

The Tennessee Supreme Court said Monday that it will not hear the appeal of Pamela Joan Turner, formerly Pamela Rogers. The decision means that the former Warren County gym teacher will be in prison until June of 2013.

Turner was convicted of having sex with a 13-year-old student at the Warren County, Tenn., school where she taught.

She served a few months in jail and was released on probation and ordered to stay away from the boy.

Turner, who is now 33, was sent to prison in 2008 after sending sexually explicit photos of herself to the boy.
