Fort Collins, Colo (The Weekly Vice) - Carrie McCandless, a 35-year-old former teacher at Brighton Charter High school in Colorado has been arrested for a second time following her conviction for having sex with a student.
McCandless was convicted in the summer of 2007 after pleading guilty to having a sexual relationship with a 17 year old student during a class trip to Estes Park, Colorado. Police recovered saucy and intimate text message conversations that the teacher and student had exchanged with one another during the course of their relationship.
As a result of her conviction, McCandless was sentenced to 45 days in jail, required to register as a sex offender and was ordered to submit to enhanced supervision of her activities for 5 years. This supervision required that she notify parole officers before engaging in sexual relations with unreported parties.
McCandless was jailed again in March, 2008, after a Weld County probation officer found her in bed at the apartment of another parolee on March 6th. According to police, the fellow offender was not McCandless' husband and therefor violated the terms of her parole. As a result, she was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
McCandless then reportedly pleaded guilty to reckless driving in October, 2010 after she was arrested for driving under the influence on Sept. 8th, 2010.
According to the Larimer County Sheriff's Office, McCandless was arrested again Tuesday for violating the terms of her probation for a second time.
Court documents reportedly state that McCandless tested positive for morphine during a drug test she submitted to on April 22. This would reportedly violate the terms of her probation which states that she cannot be in possession of a mind altering substance.
McCandless, who is still married to Brighton Charter High School's principal Chris McCandless, was booked into the Larimer County Jail on Friday. She is scheduled for a disposition hearing on May 19.
