Last summer, a 50-something and recently separated British teacher, Deborah Lowe, was arrested for multiple incidents of taking one of her students back to her trailer park for sex. Lowe pleaded not guilty to the charges at the time, wherein the authorities claimed the sex began when the student at the school where Lowe was the Pastoral Studies teacher was 15 years of age, making him a minor. They argue that even if he had turned 16, the age of consent in the U.K., the sex was still illegal because of rules forbidding teachers from sleeping with students.
For her part, Lowe maintained her innocence as her court trial began this past week. She admits to the sexual relationship, but insists nothing happened until the boy was 17 and out of her school, meaning she was free and clear to boff away. The court case is now revolving around dates and times and places of the sex so as to nail down who’s right or wrong here on their timelines.
During the trial, rather sensational bits of evidence have come out including letters Lowe sent to her teen lover after he cut her off online following their sexual contact. Unclear if he made the decision himself after realizing he was sleeping with his Christian counselor thrice his age. The cut-off apparently drove Lowe into a fit of depression wherein she started sending the boy messages, both online and by mail, calling herself his slut, demanding to see him, and implying how lonely she was without him on her birthday:
“I’m a mess. You blocked me and I don’t know what I have done. Who else can I be a slut with? I would never, ever upset, hurt, harm or make you unhappy. So please tell me what I have done. Is it my fat old arse? It’s my birthday and I’m so sad. I bloody miss you, love the slut.”
Well that’s a thing. Lowe also included the picture of a female with her panties-clad ass in the air splayed out in the grass explaining this is how she felt since he cut her off from communications. She seems very pastoral.
It was these very cards that tipped off the boy’s parent to alert the authorities and arrest Lowe. The lady teachers never can save themselves from themselves in their predatory acts. The guys seem to be more naturally sinister and conniving.
Trial resumes next week. Nobody seems to have a handle on the outcome, other than Lowe will now wear the sorry and desperate label until Kingdom Come.
