Lesbian gym teacher jailed for sex romps with two girl pupils
GROOMED PUPILS: Teacher Sandrine Brown A FEMALE PE teacher who groomed two teen schoolgirls and even had sex with one of them in a school storeroom has been jailed for 18 months.
Sandrine Brown, 31, got close to the first pupil in May 2008 when she was only 13 years old.
The teacher, who was head of girls Physical Education, then started talking to the teen online before swapping numbers.
A court heard they started a sexual relationship when the schoolgirl was 14 after becoming close during the summer holidays.
The youngster regularly slept over at Brown’s flat in Stoke, Coventry, and engaged in sexual activity with her in her car. They even had a sexual liaison in a school storeroom.
Brown then made contact with the girl’s friend, starting up a relationship with her in January 2010. The girl was only 16.
At Warwick Crown Court the prosecutor, Graeme Simpson, said: “The first victim says she first started to talk to the defendant when she was 13.
“It seems she befriended her on that trip. She developed feelings for the defendant during the trip.
“That friendship continued and developed starting with chats on MSN with the defendant asking if she would like to meet up outside school. They exchanged mobile numbers and arranged to meet. They spent the evening at her flat together and they kissed.
“The defendant asked
if she wanted to be her girlfriend and she agreed.
“During the school summer holidays she turned 14 and spent more time during the day at the defendant’s flat and it was at that time sexual activity occurred beyond kissing.
“She began to spend the night at the flat telling her parents she was going to stay at a friend’s.
“There were times they would meet to walk dogs and would engage in sexual activity in the defendant’s car. That included kissing, oral sex and digital penetration.
“There were occasions when sexual activity would take place in the PE department storeroom.”
The court heard Brown then met the second teenager, who was a friend of the first victim, when both girls came to her flat together.
Mr Simpson added: “She started visiting the defendant’s flat with her friend but after she turned 16 in November 2009 she started visiting alone.
“Both victims began spending time with the defendant. In the second victim’s case, the sexual activity involved kissing, oral sex and digital penetration.”
Brown admitted one charge of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity while in a position of trust as a teacher. She also pleaded guilty to five counts of sexual activity with a child. She showed no emotion as she was jailed.
Along with her jail term, Brown was also made the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 10 years and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register.
