A TEACHER allegedly romped with a 14-year-old student five times in a car after sending saucy Snapchat pics saying she was ‘waiting for him’.
Monica Young, 23, who is engaged is alleged to have bombarded the boy with messages on Snapchat begging him to send explicit pictures to her.
The western Sydney teacher was charged with 10 offences including multiple counts of aggravated sexual intercourse of a child aged between 14-16 after being arrested on July 10.
Prosecutors will now review her charges to decide which matters will proceed to the District Court after a partial brief of evidence had been served.
Investigators say Young was charged with assaulting the boy on five separate occasions including at school and also in her car.
The court was previously told about how the teacher had sent pictures of herself and suggestive messages including one of her lying in bed with the caption “I’m waiting for you.”
If convicted of the crime, Young could face up to 12 years in jail.
It is alleged a piece of CCTV evidence shows Young’s hands moving to the boy’s groin.
In the footage, she also allegedly places the teenager’s hands inside her tights.
Young’s defence have countered these allegations saying the footage does not show any signs of sexual assault as the vision was blocked by a table.
Her lawyers described the CCTV evidence as being “exaggerated”.
Through her lawyers, Young said she had been “foolish” to meet up with the teenager after school hours but has denied there was any intention of sexual assault.
More charges could be raised against her through the course of the investigation, the cort was previously told.
Young was due to appear at Burwood Local Court on Wednesday; however, her solicitor asked the court for an adjournment of six weeks after being granted bail last month.
She is next due to appear in court on October 14 for charge certification, according to news.com.au.

New South Wales Police Acting Superintendent Michael Haddow previously said the allegations showed a major breach of trust saying: “It’s abhorrent – ultimately teachers have a significant responsibility.”
Young’s bail is under strict conditions and she has been warned not to contact the boy or his family.
Under bail conditions, she also has to live with her grandmother.
