Teacher had secret sex with a 15 years old boy
A married teacher had sex with a 15-year-old boy in a field and sent him topless pictures of herself on Snapchat which were then circulated around the school
Kandice Barber, 35, also allegedly told the boy she might be pregnant with his baby after sleeping with him following a sports awards evening at a secondary school in Buckinghamshire.
Aylesbury Crown Court was told Barber approached the boy at a school sports awards day and added him on Snapchat.
Prosecutors alleged the teacher, then 33, had then picked up the youngster in her car and driven him to a secluded area where she had sex with him.
Jurors heard how the teacher, who had school-age children of her own, had later met up with the boy for two other illicit trysts and sent him pictures of herself topless, which were then widely shared around the school.
'It all started at a sports evening on September 27, 2018 when she came over to him and asked to borrow his phone.
'She had possession of his phone, she put her details into his Snapchat account. Things developed on her part by her sending him messages. She would tell him she was having a bath or a shower and then ask him if he wanted to meet.
'She had driven over, he got into her car, she asked for somewhere private, he suggested some fields. It was 5pm in the evening on a school day.'
The court was told that Barber had sex with the boy and then later sent him topless pictures of herself, which were shown to the jury.
Barber, of Wendover, denied three counts of causing or inciting a child aged under 16 years to engage in a sexual act, one count of sexual communication with a child, one count of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activities while in a position of trust and one count of causing a child to watch a sexual act by a person in a position of trust.
'The law does not permit, indeed criminalises, any sexual activity between a teacher and a child under the age of 18 years, even if they were consensual relations.'
