Jurors hearing the case of a married teacher who allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old schoolboy, have retired at Amersham Law Courts to consider their verdict.

Kandice Barber, 35, of Wendover, is being tried for a second time over allegations that she had sex with the pupil in a field while she was working as a school cover supervisor.

A court heard that Barber had told the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, she would “bring him down with her” if the relationship was discovered.

She was convicted in September of sending the boy topless pictures of herself on Snapchat between September and October 2018, but she was acquitted of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activities while in a position of trust.

Jurors at Aylesbury Crown Court were unable to reach verdicts on three more serious charges of causing or inciting a child aged under 16 to engage in a sexual act.

Prosecutor Richard Milne told jurors at Amersham Law Courts last week that Barber faces retrial on three counts of causing or inciting a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity.
