A teacher is accused of failing to comply with a curfew following allegations of sex with a student

A teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with her 13-year-old student was back in court Wednesday morning.

According to the prosecution, soon after she made bond, she ran around the track of a school to work out. The prosecution had a discussion with her about the violation, but didn't take any legal action at that time.

The judge denied the prosecution's request to revoke the bond, but he did say this is her last chance.

Neither the prosecution, nor the defense would comment on today's bond hearing.
