The former Lawrence High School teacher who admitted earlier this summer to having sex with a student was arrested Monday afternoon for violating a no-contact order issued by the court.

Meredith Kane, 24, was being booked at the Douglas County Jail Monday afternoon. Authorities could offer no additional information.

Kane pleaded guilty in July to one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. The acts occurred between August 2006 and March of this year with a student who was 15 at the time.

She was arrested in March. As part of her March release from jail on $15,000 bond, Kane was required to have no contact with any witness or the victim.

Kane's sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 12.

You'd think that maybe she would think to delete her Facebook account; you know, the one where she's "friends" with dozens of LHS students. I have no idea if that's why she's back in the clink, but if I can see that she's still connected with high school students then maybe the prosecutors did too.

I guess she's pretty lucky that this didn't make national news?

"she's into punishment mode, not thinking clearly"

uhh... at what point WAS she thinking clearly?

Actually, I believe it is about to make national news. I just submitted it to a popular news site.

She isn't pretty enough. Sorry to say, its the really pretty female teachers having sex with the boys that make the national news--so all the guys can say: Wish I could have been a victim like that kid.

Pogo, why make assumptions not based on fact? How do you know whether she's on drugs or not?

You don't have to drug screen to be a teacher? I find this incredibly hard to believe. Please, someone, anyone, know what the school board's policy is on drug screening?
