MCMINNVILLE, Tenn. – Authorities have arrested a female teacher from a Warren County, Tennessee school, charging her with having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy. Pamela Rogers Turner was charged this week with 15 counts of sexual battery by an authority figure and 13 counts of statutory rape.

The 27-year-old Turner is a graduate of Tennessee Tech University with a degree in education. Bobby Cox, director of instruction for Warren County schools, said Turner had been a teacher in the Warren County system for about 1½ years. She taught physical education and worked with all grades at the K-8 grade school in McMinnville.

Prosecutor Dale Potter says some of incidents were alleged to have taken place at the school – others at the student’s home. Potter says his office intends to prosecute the case to the fullest extent possible because it involves a child.

Turner is currently free on $50,000 bond, and has been placed on leave by the school system, with an arraignment set for Feb. 23.

Pamela’s father, Lamar Rogers, has been the girls basketball coach at Clarkrange High School for 29 years, winning his first state champsionship in 1983, and coached his daughter Pamela’s team to the state title in 1995.

Pamela Joan Rogers married Christopher Turner on July 26, 2003. Turner is currently in the process of a divorce from her husband, who is head coach for the Warren County High School boys varsity basketball team in McMinnville.

Conviction on all counts could be punished by up to 100 years in prison, although it is unlikely given her gender. There is no word yet on whether she will use an insanity defense like Debra Lafave, another teacher with similiar troubles.

On tonight’s Inside Edition, they reported the arrest of Pamela Turner for sexual battery and statutory rape of a 13 year-old boy. They should footage of her winning a Miss Nitro contest by WCW. There was no mention of the WCW connection until Inside Edition came up with the footage.
