Mary Kay Letourneau, the former teacher convicted of having sex with a 12-year-old student whom she later married, has been jailed again in Seattle in a suspended license case, reports CBS affiliate KIRO TV.
Letourneau was booked into King County Jail early Monday for allegedly failing to appear in court after being accused of driving on a suspended license. She was expected to post a $5,000 bond, reports the station.
She was reportedly arrested around 8 p.m. Sunday.
Letourneau became infamous after she was arrested in 1997 and accused of
having sex with her former sixth-grade student, Vili Fualaau. Letourneau pleaded guilty in exchange for a 3-month jail
sentence and probation, reports the station. Then 34, she had given birth to Fualaau's child.
After being released, authorities discovered Letourneau and Fualaau together in 1998, a violation of Letourneau’s parole. She again became pregnant with Fualaau’s child. Following the violation, she was sentenced by a judge to 7-and-a-half years in prison.
After her release, Fualaau and Letourneau were married in 2005, when she was 43 and Fualaau was 22.
