TONASKET, Wash. -

An Okanogan County judge ruled this afternoon that she won't face any new charges and let her go.

37-year old Elizabeth Kinkade was arrested again over the weekend in Tonasket. A police source tells KHQ that Kinkade broke a no contact order with the victim. 

Kinkade was arrested back in May for sexual misconduct with an 18-year-old student at the school. Court documents say Kinkade did not believe she was doing anything wrong since the student was 18. 

Even though the student was of legal age, Washington state law says that she abused her role as a teacher and broke the law because she is more than five years older than the student, he was currently in school and not 21 years old.

Kinkade was placed on leave by the the Tonasket school district after the allegations surfaced, then later fired. Court documents say Kinkade's husband was also arrested in May for allegedly firing a gun during a domestic dispute after Kinkade told him of the relationship with the student. Kinkade agreed to nine months electronic home monitoring in November. She avoided jail time after the judge took in to consideration that the 18-year-old student did not want to press charges.

Kinkade's husband was also arrested over the weekend for allegedly assaulting Kinkade during a domestic dispute. During the incident police say Kinkade was talking with and texting the 18-year-old student which violated the order.
