Hot for teacher … and cash

Two 16-year-old schoolboys blackmail their teacher after she has sex with them

A 27-year-old female physical education teacher at Himmerland School, a live-in institution near Aalborg in northern Jutland, was blackmailed by two of her students after she had sex with both of them for several months in late 2011.

The school’s administration got wind of the affair during the Christmas break after the two boys could not resist doing what boys do and bragged about it to their friends. The teacher was immediately dismissed and the school contacted Midt- og Vestjyllands police.

The police charged the woman under section 223 of the Penal Code, which prohibits teachers from having sex with students. When she appeared before the court, the teacher admitted that she had engaged in sexual acts with both boys in the school gymnasium and in the boy’s dormitory rooms, which she has access to in order to help the lads with their homework.

"She admitted it," Jens Severinsen, the police prosecutor, told BT tabloid.

The two boys were subsequently offered psychological support while they completed the school year.

As police investigated the case, however, new and surprising developments began to pop up including the revelation that the boys had demanded that the teacher give them 3,000 kroner each for their silence about the affair.

"The boys were charged with extortion, which they subsequently acknowledged," Severinsen told BT.

The boys were fined 1,500 kroner and forced to give the teacher her 3,000 kroner back.

The father of one of the 16-year-old boys was unimpressed with his son's actions.

"I think it is tasteless. Even if you are only 16, you need to be able to control yourself,” he told BT.

The school's director, Lone Baadsgaard, told BT that the teacher had to share in the blame.

“This is something that should never happen," she said. "Teachers have a huge responsibility to their students.”

In related news, earlier this week a 46-year-old teacher was sentenced to 60 days in jail by a court in Næstved for having sex with a ??14-year-old student. The man admitted to having sex with the student more than 30 times in the school’s classrooms, toilet and basement. The teacher has been suspended from the Zealand school were he had been employed.
