A paedophile teacher is to face jail terms for having sex with two schoolboys in her car and at her home.

Laura Dunker, 31, is the second teacher facing jail over sexual relations with pupils within two years at Bedford High School in Ohio, US.
She is to be sentenced on November 19 after admitting two counts of sexual battery last Thursday.

Dunker had pleaded not guilty to six counts of the sexual battery – four with one male student and two with another – three days earlier.

She is accused of having sexual contact with two students in her car Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

Police said two of the other incidents happened at her home between November 2018 and October 2019.

Dunker resigned from Bedford Schools on December 5 last year – just months after its head football coach Sean Williams, 45, was jailed for six years for sexual battery with a female student.

The former teacher was convicted of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with the pupil. He had been teaching at the school from August 2010 until his resignation last February.

Dunker was also charged with tampering with evidence in November 2019, while “knowing that an official proceeding or investigation was in progress”. In exchange for her guilty plea, prosecutors dropped four additional counts of sexual battery and a tampering with evidence charge.

Police began investigating her after a school recourse officer was tipped off about a potential inappropriate relationship between a female teacher and a male student.

On December 4, 2019, authorities confirmed that the accusations were credible and involved two male students, according to WKYC.

Following her resignation, Bedford Superintendent Andrea Celico released a statement saying: “As I previously shared with our community, we immediately put the teacher on leave in order to protect the safety and well-being of our students.

“We offered services for those affected and will continue to offer support to those who may have been impacted by these allegations. As always, our priority is for the care and concern for the student victims and our school community as a whole.”
