Disgraced UK teacher Kandice Barber blew kisses to her husband Friday as she was led to a lockup after being found guilty of having sex with her 15-year-old student, according to reports.
Barber, of Wendover, Buckinghamshire, was convicted Thursday of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, but was found not guilty of two other counts of the same offense, the BBC reported.
The mother-of-three covered her face Friday as she arrived for a bail hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court holding hands with hubby Daniel, 38, as he carried a large overnight bag, according to The Sun.
Barber, who faces up to five years in the slammer, will remain behind bars until a sentencing hearing on Feb. 15.
Judge Bal Dhaliwal told Barber she hoped she had used her night at home to explain to her kids what was about to happen and to “bid them farewell for the time being,” The Sun reported.
Defense attorney Gavin Holme begged the judge to allow her to return home before sentencing as an “act of humanity” so she could homeschool her children, even though Barber had been warned that “custody was inevitable.”
As the verdict was ready out Thursday, Barber’s husband called it “a joke.”
In September, she was convicted of sexual communication with a child and causing a child to watch a sexual act by a person in a position of trust after sending the boy topless pictures of herself on Snapchat in 2018.
The jury heard how Barber began messaging the boy that year after taking his phone number at a school sports day event. Their texts soon turned “sexual” and she later picked him up in her vehicle before driving to a field and having sex with him.
She continued to send the boy raunchy texts, including while teaching him in class.
“You cannot make me blush when I am teaching now, poker face,” she wrote in one message.
A fellow student also claimed he saw messages from Barber, asking: “Do you prefer boobs or bum?”
The 15-year-old also showed a friend a shower selfie showing Barber’s face and a snap of her bending over a bed.
Barber was arrested in March 2020, four months after the principal discovered an X-rated picture of her making the rounds in the school.
Her husband defended his wife in court, telling jurors their marriage is as “strong” as ever, called her his “rock” and said he was unaffected by her conviction, according to The Sun.
Meanwhile, Barber’s former boyfriend described her as a “wonderful girl” and “great mother,” the Daily Mail reported.
But added that their relationship came to end because of her insatiable sex demands, according to the outlet.
“When I heard about the video and picture she’d sent this lad and where they had sexual contact, it reminded me of our relationship. I thought that sounds like Kandice,” the ex told, who did not want to be named, told the outlet.
“That was the sort of stuff she was into and it didn’t surprise me at all but what shocked me was that she did it with a kid. I can’t believe how stupid she’s been,” he said.
The former beau said he met Barber on dating site Plenty of Fish and that their relationship was dominated by her “huge sex drive” – as she demanded sex up to six times per day.
“She liked doing it outside, sometimes in the car, the garden or in woods. We’d be driving somewhere, and she’d say, ‘Pull over, I’m feeling horny.’ It just got too much for me,” he told the Daily Mail.
“Everyone has got their personal needs and that sort of stuff got her excited but by the end of it I couldn’t be bothered, I’d just had enough. It was too excessive,” he said.
“Kandice is a wonderful girl, a great mother and overall, very law abiding. During our time together she never got so much as a parking ticket. But when it came to sex, she was just incredibly frisky and that’s what got her into all this trouble,” he added.
