Disgraced teacher

A disgraced teacher has been arrested after she planned a holiday to Rome with a 16-year-old boy she had sex with.

Roseanna Langley, 24, faces jail after she breached a court order by not giving police enough notice of her travel plans.

Langley was sacked from her teaching job last year because of her relationship with the boy, now 17. A judge heard she sent text messages to the teenager which included: "Baby please let me tie you up tomorrow, it's so sexy" and "Babe I love planning our future together."

Pupils at the Exeter secondary school became aware of their relationship after she invited students to her flat to watch films.

They said the couple kissed and cuddled before going to her bedroom.

Langley was given a suspended prison sentence and signed the sex offenders' register.

A court heard how she groomed the boy, who cannot be named, for sex, sent him naked pictures and lied about being pregnant and miscarrying his child to prolong the affair.

Langley admitted two counts of sexual activity with a male aged 13-17 while in a position of trust.

She was given an eight-month sentence, suspended for two years, and was told to attend a sex offenders' course.

As part of her punishment, she was required to notify the court of foreign travel a week before leaving.

Langley and the boy, with whom she is still having a relationship, went to Norway in January but only told officers afterwards.

On Thursday, weeks after being cautioned, she went to her local police station to tell them about the Rome trip, due to begin on Sunday.

Police arrested her and seized her passport and she spent the night in the cells.

At the court in Exeter, Langley admitted breaching her notification requirements.

Vanessa Francis, defending, said Langley was not the boy's teacher before she was sacked and the boy left the school and is no longer a pupil.

She said their relationship is known to the probation service and they were heading off to Rome for a few days before he joins the Army in Yorkshire at the end of next week.

Miss Francis said: "She has not been trying to hide what she has been doing from the police. Her ultimate goal was to be a teacher. But what she did was wrong."

Exeter magistrates sent the case to the city's Crown Court for a judge to sentence her next month. She was bailed.
