A former high school teacher in Stamford, Conn. who was previously arrested for carrying out a sexual relationship with a student was arrested once again for allegedly threatening another this week.

According to NBC Connecticut, 32-year-old Danielle Watkins accosted the student at a coffee shop on Friday: 

[You and your friend] have taken everything from my: my family, my kids, my job, Watkins allegedly told the teen, according to the victim's attorney. I will not rest until you are both dead.

Authorities say that Watkins, a former English teacher at Stamford High School, had provided the teen with marijuana while he was one of her students. During that period, she was engaged in a sexual relationship with the other student which spanned nine-months.

The teen told his mother about the encounter, and both reported the incident to the police. NBC Connecticut adds that Watkins also called the other teen with similar threats.

Watkins was arrested and charged with second-degree threatening and violating the conditions of her release. Under the conditions of a plea deal, she had previously pleaded guilty to second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.
