Gay Davidson-ShepardA former middle school teacher charged with having sex with a 17-year-old boy has been arrested again after she allegedly texted and called the alleged victim.

Westminster police arrested Gay Davidson-Shepard, who retired this spring from Mesa View Middle School, after investigators determined that she had contacted the 17-year-old boy, violating terms of her restraining order, according to Orange County Deputy Dist. Atty. Angela Hong.

Davidson-Shepard and her husband, former Westminster High School teacher Daniel Shepard, were arrested in April on suspicion of having sexual relations with a male Westminster High student, the Huntington Beach Independent reported. They are charged with multiple felony counts, including oral copulation of a minor, sodomy of a person younger than 18 and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

After Davidson-Shepard's arrest Wednesday, she faces an additional misdemeanor charge of violating a protective order, Hong said.

The former teachers pleaded not guilty to the felony charges in June.
