53-year-old teacher Deborah Lowe shared wild Whatsapp fantasies with 15-year-old student, her sexual partner
A 53-year-old Deborah Lowe, used to teach at the Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown was involved in sending sexual messages to a teenage boy on Whatsaap describing her wild fantasies. The messages were described as “baby oil and handcuffs”, a court heard.
The teacher also slept with the 15-year-old boy while he was at the school where she used to teach.
Deborah, from Poynton, Cheshire has two children and she herself admitted sleeping with the teenager boy.
She told the court," I was mortified and ended up in bed but didn't do anything like that before".
She also denies five counts of sexual contact with a child by a person. On Thursday, members from jury asked to return a verdict of not guilty to a separate count of sexual activity with a child in court.
In 2016, Deborah shared the details of messages whcih she sent to the boy with one of her friend. Her friend wrote: “We can’t all have a 17-year-old to s***!!! xxxx”
Deborah replied to her friends messgae, “Can I just say for a moment, I am not s******* him. I am merely a mother figure. However, if at some point in the not so distant future he wants to discuss the merits of an older woman, I will be there for him.”
The friend texted back “Can’t blame you. Yummy”.
Lowe replied: “....with a bottle of baby oil and handcuffs.”
She explained in the court that the conversation was just a joke and she didn't do sex with the boy that time.
In December 2017, she became came close to the teenager at her flat in Stockport, when the boy left the school.
She told the members of jury that she used to contact they boy through Facebook and use to pick him up as he sounded upset.
She explained the whole scenario to the court, which took place at the flat, "we kissed, and then I am very embarrassed to say that we ended up in bed together, which I regret."
She told the jury, “I am mortified. I am embarrassed. I think I was having some sort of mid-life crisis. I have never done anything like that before and I don’t know why I did it. I am ashamed.”
The boy said “it's like every lad's fantasy” to have sex with a teacher when questioned by police.
