A former Alabama teacher and registered sex offender previously convicted of sending sexts and inappropriate images found herself back behind bars — for failing to stay away from an elementary school.

Police arrested 35-year-old Crystal Gilliland Clowdus, on Wednesday in Blount County for violating the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act after volunteering to be a classroom mom for her fifth-grade child at Oneonta Elementary School, AL.com reported.

A judge in 2014 previously sentenced Clowdus to 10 years in prison, nine of which were suspended after pleading guilty to texting sexually explicit messages and nude photos to a 15-year-old student, when she worked as a teacher at Susan Moore High School, in Blountsville.

Clowdus served only six months in prison followed by six months of house arrest and was also required to register as a lifetime sex offender.

She was also required to surrender her teaching license as a result of the conviction.

State law prohibits adult sex offenders from having any involvement in any child care or school facility. Doing so is considered a felony offense.

Police booked the former educator in Blount County jail on a $15,000 bond.
