New developments in a Baldwin County case we've been following for more than two years.

Barbara Grice served prison time for firing a gun inside an elementary school.

She is now back in jail on a probation violation charge.

Grice was in a Baldwin County courtroom Wednesday morning for a scheduled hearing on the revocation.

Authorities said in 2015,  Grice walked into Elberta Elementary School  with a revolver and threatened to kill her sister, who was the school's  cafeteria manager.

They said Grice pointed the gun at her sister and fired..  

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

Grice pleaded guilty to federal and state charges and spent three years in prison.

Late last year, she was released.

But, she is behind bars again after the Baldwin County District Attorney's office said she violated her probation.
District Attorney Robert Wilters said, "Part of the reason for the revocation on the state charges is her failure to appear before probation officers, failure to pay court ordered money, and failure to report to court referral officers for drug screenings." 
Grice's attorney, John Beck, says his client thought she didn't have to report a state probation officer since she was already reporting to a federal probation officer.

Beck said, "She has been on supervised release with federal authorities and everything was run concurrent, and she felt that that meant her probation was concurrent."
Wilters also asked Judge Clark Stankoski to add another condition to her probation:  that Grice cannot  go on school grounds or attend any school programs after a recent incident.
Wilters said, "I won't tell you what school it was, but she did appear at a school and there was contact made by her by the school resource officer."
Beck said, "I'm not sure of those details other than the fact that she was picking up a sick grandchild and she got permission from the school ahead of time." 
Judge Stankoski granted the additional condition.

But, for now, Grice will remain in the Baldwin jail until a hearing on the probation revocation.

A hearing on the probation revocation is scheduled for April 25.
