A teacher in Great Britain got much more than she bargained for when she decided to start a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy.
Lauren Cox, 27, a geography teacher at a south London school, screamed “I’m sorry” after receiving a 12 month jail sentence on five counts of sex with a child in her charge. Not only is she going to jail, but she’s been barred from teaching. And there’s more. She’ getting a divorce from her husband.
According to a report in the Metro, the relationship came to light when the mother of the boy, whose name has not been released, became suspicious about her son’s activities and began spying on him.
She saw Cox pick her son up in her car at their home. Cox was also discovered to have sent the boy explicit videos and told him to keep their relationship a secret.
In a victim’s statement to the court, the boy said he felt trapped and insulated himself from family and friends.
