Ex-teacher facing sentencing for sex with student rearrested

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A former Stamford High school teacher awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to felony charges related to a sexual relationship with a student has been arrested again for allegedly threatening a student connected with her case.

The Stamford Advocate reports that 32-year-old Danielle Watkins of Norwalk was taken into custody Friday. She was first arrested in July, accused of having sex with one student and giving marijuana to another. Police say she threatened one of the victims at a doughnut shop earlier Friday.

Watkin pleaded guilty to second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor last month under a deal with prosecutors. The agreement calls for her to serve between nine months and four years in jail. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 22.
