Erin Baynard Stewart was arrested in April 2010 charged with two felonies of sexual misconduct with a minor.
Stewart was teaching Social Studies at Chauncey Rose Middle School in Terre Haute at the time.
Police said a 14-year-old boy reported having sexual relations with Stewart on four separate occasions, once even in a classroom.
