Deborah Lowe a 53 year old Cheshire teacher pleads not guilty to having sex with a former 15 year old student after allegations of grooming.
Deborah Lowe a married 53 year old UK teacher from Poynton, Cheshire has been accused of having sex with a 15 year old student, claims that the mother of two and former flight attendant has vehemently denied.
Appearing at Minshull Street Crown Court on Wednesday, Lowe who taught at a school in Greater Manchester pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual activity with a child and five counts of sexual activity with a child by a person in a position of trust.
According to the dailymail, the former teacher was charged last month for her alleged role in a ‘sex romp’ with the teen boy who attended school where Lowe taught.
Charges against the woman included Lowe, ‘intentionally touching a 15-year-old boy, not reasonably believing he was 16 or over and abusing a position of trust by being in a sexual relationship with a boy aged 16.’
According to arrest reports, Lowe spent a year ‘working the boy into the right position’, before launching into sexual encounters with him in her caravan camping park where she lived, while separated from her husband.

Police investigators said the purported indiscreet liaisons occurred between September 2015 and July 2016 after the boy left the school.
So smitten was Lowe with her alleged victim, now aged 17, prosecutors told of the woman, who was the head of pastoral care the high school where she taught, offering to get him a heart shaped tattoo.
So infatuated was Lowe with her ‘new love interest’, the teacher embarked upon sending the then 15 year old a series of ’indiscrete’ texts, messages along with coming across diary entries.
Judge Maurice Greene decided to grant Lowe bail despite prosecutor claims there were ‘substantial grounds to believe Lowe would interfere with witnesses’.
Trial is scheduled for five days, beginning on April 9 next year.
