A prison teacher in New Jersey has gotten herself JammedUp after authorities had discovered she had sex with a convicted murderer over 20 times in jail and even got pregnant twice.

Officials from the New Jersey Department of Corrections confirmed the arrest of 42-year-old Chong-Hwa Chang on charges of sexual assault in connection with her raunchy jailhouse romps with inmate Rashid Walker.

The 35-year-old Walker is serving a 60-year prison term for a 2004 murder conviction in the fatal shooting of a coin laundry manager during an armed robbery in Passaic, New Jersey.

The affair occurred at Trenton’s New Jersey State maximum security prison, where she worked as a teacher for nine years. However, Walker was not a student of Chang.

Prosecutors in Mercer County launched an investigation after they were tipped-off to the prison booty-call. Authorities obtained a warrant to search the home of Chang, where they found her personal journal that provided a juicy detailed account of the sordid affair.

In her diary, Chang wrote how she was impregnated twice by Walker, one pregnancy she aborted, the other ended in a miscarriage.

Shortly after her arrest, officials fired Chang from her post.

According to prosecutors, the investigation discovered Chang even developed a personal relationship with the family of the inmate. She went as far as showering Walker’s relatives with gifts and even attended a family wedding.

Although the sex was consensual, Chang still faces sexual assault charges because she held a supervisory position at the prison.

Records show Chang has two children from a previous relationship, has a master’s degree from Rutgers University and is a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in South Korea

At a bail hearing on Thursday, Chang had her bail reduced from $75,000 to $50,000 by a judge.
