(COLUMBUS, IN) - An arrest warrant has been issued for a former substitute teacher who taught in Bartholomew County Consolidated School Corporation this school year despite a conviction for possessing illegal drugs.

Earlier in October of this year, 43-year-old Teresa Estes stated in court that she worked for the school corporation as a substitute teacher, but the drug-related information was apparently not immediately shared with the school district.

The Edinburgh woman failed to appear in court Monday morning for a hearing regarding a petition to revoke her probation although she has not yet been arrested.

The woman testified in October that she never smoked crack during a school year, although three months into the 2007 school year, Columbus police stopped Estes while she was driving and discovered a glass pipe and cocaine; the woman admitted to having just smoked crack.

The woman has reportedly spent much of her life on alcohol and drugs after begginning to use at age 14.
