    UK Daily Mail: Teacher jailed for 10 years for repeated sex with 13-year-old student while his friend watched wants her sentence reduced (Feb 27 2014)
    • Rachel Holt pleaded guilty to one count of rape over sexual relationship with teenager in 2006
    • Science teacher had sex with boy more than 25 times, police claimed
    Court documents showed that Holt had been disciplined by the school for 'inappropriate behavior' including sitting on the laps of male students, and driving them home in her car. In January 2006, just a few months before she started having sex with a 13-year-old student, the school principal, Betty Pinchin, had received several complaints from parents about Holt.
    The concerns included that the science teacher was 'instant messaging kids 10.00 at night' and 'becoming more of a buddy tha[n] a teacher'. In March 2006 she was suspended for three days after a parent volunteer observed her kissing and hugging a student in the library. She returned to work on March 16 and began a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old on March 24.
