Teacher, 35, accused of having sex with 15-year-old pupil and sending him topless pictures

A teacher accused of having sex with a 15-year-old pupil and sending him topless pictures was seen arriving at court holding hands with her husband today.

Kandice Barber, 35, of Wendover, Buckinghamshire, is accused of having sex with the teenager in a field and sending him topless pictures of herself on Snapchat.  

The jury has now retired to consider their verdict.  

Aylesbury Crown Court heard that Barber and the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had sex in a field in October 2018 after she approached him at a sports presentation evening the previous month and added herself to his Snapchat on his phone.

The student claimed the mother-of-three had told him he had a bigger penis than her husband and that she was pregnant with his child.

She was arrested after the boy revealed the relationship to the headteacher in March 2019 after naked pictures of Barber circulated around Princes Risborough School in Buckinghamshire, the court heard.

In her evidence, Barber said she had given the teenager her number so he could talk to her about any issues and denied the conversations were sexual.

She told the court she never sent him topless pictures of herself and claimed the My Eyes Only folder in her Snapchat had been hacked.

She said she became uncomfortable with the boy’s phone calls and when she refused to have any contact with him she claimed he sent a message reading: ‘Watch what’s going to happen, you’re going to lose your job, you’re going to lose your family.’

In November 2018 Barber was off school for two weeks after suffering an ectopic pregnancy.
