A TEACHER jailed after she had sex with a 15-year-old girl in her car has today been unmasked.
Aimee Jones, 35, was caught having a sexual relationship with the girl by her social worker husband Philip, who told police.
The mum-of-one had invented a female teaching assistant she was having an affair with at the school in Darlington, County Durham, to throw him off the scent.
She even asked her school to pretend there was a member of staff by that name if he called to check in a brazen attempt to hide the abuse.
Jones and her husband agreed to stay together for the sake of their four-year-old son but he later discovered the teaching assistant was actually a teenage girl.
She has now been jailed for eight months after admitting engaging in sexual activity with a child aged between 13 and 17.
Teesside Crown Court heard how Jones, head of science and maths, first approached the pupil last year when she was just 15.
They then kissed and touched each other sexually while hidden by a blanket in Jones' car.
Prosecutor Jon Harley said: "The defendant told her that she was bisexual and that she was having feelings of sexual attraction towards her.
"This made her feel slightly uncomfortable, she did not know how to process that information or what to do with it.
"But in the following weeks and months, messages continued between the two, mostly instigated by the defendant.
"They were not overtly sexual, they were polite and pleasant, but the messages made it clear Mrs Jones was interested in her."
The pair embarked on a 15-month relationship that only ended when Jones' husband found out she was having an affair.
The social worker shopped her to police after discovering her lover was in fact a teenage girl.
Jones was then escorted off the school premises in front of staff and pupils by police and lost her job.
In a victim impact statement, the victim's mum said the abrupt end to the relationship had been "like a bereavement" for her daughter.
She added: "She has no doubt they were in love and would have preferred the relationship to continue.
"She is now fully aware it is something that should not have happened in the first place."
The mum continued: "At best [Jones] was foolish but at worst she preyed on the fact our daughter was vulnerable from the very outset."
Sentencing, Judge Christopher Smith said: "This is a dreadfully sad case. She trusted you, she had genuine feelings for you and of course that relationship has had to come to an abrupt end."
Mr Jones did not wish to comment when approached by The Sun Online.
