LeTourneau began serving a seven an a half year prison term in February after pleading guilty last year to second degree rape of a former student--then 13.
That relationship produced a baby girl.
Her sentence had been suspended, but a judge ordered Letourneau to prison when she violated orders to stay away from the boy.
Tests at the state women's prison indicate that conception occured during her month of freedom.
There is an on-going criminal investigation and there are alleged reports that the boy, now 14, told his therapist of new sexual contact.
