(Scroll down for video) A married woman was arrested after she sent nude photos of herself to a young student.
58-year-old Elaine McKay of England, who worked as a teaching assistant, was accused of having sex with the student.
The student is 42 years younger than her.
McKay, who was married three times, allegedly exposed herself to the 15-year-old boy during a video chat. She also sent compromising pictures of herself to the underage boy.
McKay is accused of having sex with the boy in his parents’ house. The illicit relationship ended when her victim – who cannot be named for legal reasons – allowed a friend to use his phone.
After the friend discovered the topless photos of their teacher, the victim allegedly allowed his friends to view McKay performing a sexual act on herself via webcam.
Rumors quickly began circulating in the Clacton Coastal Academy in Essex, and the victim’s parents called police.
Police arrested the mother of two children, who are both in their 20s. She also has two grandchildren.
Prosecutor Richard Scott said that the defendant had breached her duty to ensure the safety and welfare of all children.
“It was consensual sex. The problem was that the boy was under 16 years old at the time, while she was in her late 50s,” he said.
The age of consent is 16 years old.
