CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A high school substitute teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student, headed to jail today.

Mary Beth Haglin, making her way to the Linn County jail after a warrant was issued for her on Thursday.

The warrant comes after Haglin was shown on National T.V. in a Crime Watch Daily report violating a no-contact order with the victim.

We asked Haglin why she violated the order, while she was making her way out of the jail this afternoon.

She declined to comment saying, "not at this time."

In the Crime Watch Daily report Haglin is shown working at Woody's Show Club in Cedar Rapids.

Crime Watch Daily aired the video on Wednesday and by Thursday a warrant was filed by a judge for Haglin.

The former substitute teacher, only spending a few hours inside the Linn County Jail before bonding out Friday.

Haglin declined to make any comment on her way out from the jail, walking quickly to a car alongside her attorney.

In a Facebook message with KWWL reporter Kristin Rogers this afternoon, Haglin said she believed the incident at Woody's shown by Crime Watch Daily was likely a set up by the victim.

Haglin claimed in the Facebook message the victim had "several of his friends come out beforehand and they snuck some pictures, which is very much not allowed in the club."

Despite admitting her sexual encounters with the high school boy to multiple media outlets including KWWL, the former substitute is pleading not guilty to her charge of Sexual Exploitation By a School Employee.

Haglin's trial is scheduled for November.
