SEATTLE -- Former teacher Mary Kay Letourneau, who made headlines after she had sex with her 12-year-old student, was back in jail in Seattle on Monday.

She was arrested Sunday night and booked into the King County Jail for failing to appear in court for a suspended driver's license case. She was held with bail set at $5,000.

She bailed out of jail on Monday afternoon.

The Burien teacher became tabloid fodder in the 1990s when she was convicted of raping the sixth-grade boy when she was 34. She served a prison sentence and married her former student, Vili Fualaau, in 2005 when he was 22.
