BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Former school teacher and convicted sex offender Cara Dickey is back behind bars after authorities caught up with her in Chicago, Illinois.

Dickey had been on the run for weeks after authorities say she cut-off her ankle monitoring bracelet and skipped parole.

The U.S. Marshals Service issued a citation to Dickey for prostitution back on February 13th in Chicago, where she was working under a different name.

"An individual was issued with appearance ticket by the Chicago police for prostitution. The individual used an alias and was released. Two days later, US Marshals and the Chicago Police determined that the individual was Cara," said Charles Salina, U.S. Marshal for Western New York.

Authorities also arrested 25-year-old Candice Brighon, who fled parole with Dickey.
