A FE­MALE teacher has been jailed for hav­ing sex with TWO teenage boys.

Lau­ren Har­ring­tonCooper, 32, pleaded guilty to en­gag­ing in sex­ual acts with an 18-year-old and 17-year-old stu­dent.

The mar­ried for­mer English teacher also ex­changed ex­plicit texts with both un­der­age lads, and sent them pho­tos of her ex­posed BREASTS.

She was sentenced to be­tween nine and 23 months in prison after plead­ing guilty to two counts of sex­ual con­tact with stu­dents and two counts of cor­rupt­ing mi­nors.

The teacher from Penn­syl­va­nia, US, will also spend the next 25 years as a regis­tered sex of­fender.

Luzerne County De­tec­tive Chaz Balogh said: “She’s no dif­fer­ent than a male preda­tor. She did the same thing ex­cept she’s fe­male, which makes this case a lit­tle unique.”

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said Har­ring­ton-Cooper used her po­si­tion to take ad­van­tage of her pupils, telling one stu­dent in the class­room, “All the candy you need is right here”.

Her lawyer claimed she suf­fered from “self es­teem” is­sues.
