Music teacher Helen Goddard jailed for lesbian affair with pupil
The Times (London) ^ | September 21, 2009 | Times On Line Story Monkey

Posted on 09/21/2009 8:36:27 AM PDT by South Hawthorne

A public school mistress who was “pressured” into a lesbian affair by a 15-year-old pupil will be allowed to continue see the girl after she is released from a 15-month jail term.

Helen Goddard - a music teacher nicknamed “the jazz lady” by pupils - befriended the teenager over coffee after lessons and their relationship eventually became sexual.

Goddard wept as she was jailed today at London’s Southwark Crown Court and placed on the sex offenders' register.

But Judge Anthony Pitts decided not to grant a prosecution request that she be banned from seeing the teenager for five years.

[SNIP]

“She describes the pair having feelings for one another, and that that was not planned or expected,” said counsel.

“This developed into them flirting with each other and sending text messages to each other. They went for a walk one day and she describes kissing Ms Goddard on the lips, which Ms Goddard responded to.”

The youngster also spoke of lying to her parents to stay at the trumpet teacher’s home where they shared a bed and kissed.

Further lies and more overnight stays followed as the relationship developed.

Ms Naughton said the pair also had “sexual relations” at her parents’ home.

In June, having declared they “loved each other” the girl told her parents she was going to spend a weekend with a relative in France, the girl and her teacher caught a plane to Paris.

But when I wrote that story where almost the exact same thing happened, YOU said it was “unbelievable”.

Definitely Not Guilty. All she needs is some sex therapy.

That should lick the problem she has.

She will still be allowed to see the student after serving time? Such is the kindness of the lib courts these days.

I’m betting that she’s accumulated a few other nicknames by now.

A public school mistress ...
Helen Goddard - a music teacher nicknamed “the jazz lady”



There's your trouble.
We didn't have public school mistresses when I was in school.

Sooooo....let me get this straight... A registered sex offender is allowed to continue contacting the victim.

When Goddard gets out, the girl will be over 16, which is the age of consent in the UK, and Goddard will not be her teacher any more.
