said she was caught with a Sheffield High ninth-grader.

Police detective Capt. Lanny Coan tells the TimesDaily that
38-year-old Amanda Watkins was charged on Monday and has been
transferred to the Colbert County Jail.

Coan said her bail is set at $15,000.

A police officer caught Watkins and the 15-year-old student
