SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson has formally filed motions in court today to extend LaTangela Williams' jail time.

Jackson was not happy over the fact the county jail allowed Williams to go free for nine hours so she could attend her father's 35th anniversary as a pastor at a church in Orrville. It's not clear at this point who signed off on Williams' temporary release.

Williams pleaded guilty two months ago for having sexual relations with two students while she taught at Selma High School.

Jackson says Williams made a "mockery of the county's legal system." Jackson will ask the court to have Williams serve out the rest of her original 10 year prison sentence. No word as of now when the court will schedule this hearing.
