A female teacher who was jailed after she sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in her car has been unmasked.

Aimee Jones was pictured hiding underneath a tightly drawn hood with sunglasses obscuring her face as she appeared at Teesside Crown Court but has now been pictured.

The 35-year-old was reported to the police by her social worker husband, Philip, who uncovered the illegal affair.

The mum-of-one had come up with a cover story, inventing a female teaching assistant that she was apparently having an affair with at the school she worked at in Darlington, County Durham.

Initially Jones, of Richmond, North Yorkshire, and her husband stayed together but he later discovered the teaching assistant was in fact a teenage girl and alerted the cops.

Jones has now been jailed for eight months after admitting engaging in sexual activity with a child aged between 13 and 17.

She first approached the victim at school and told her she was bisexual and that she was "having feelings of attraction towards her," Teesside Crown Court heard.

A few months after the initial contact, the pair met at the park and would hold hands.

Jon Harley, prosecuting, said: "The couple went on to walk in the more remote parts of the park or sit in the rear of Ms Jones car.

"They kissed, they embraced and on one occasion they both removed their upper clothing and were naked from the waist up.

"This was always accompanied by, what is described as, intense pre and post texting with Ms Jones acknowledging that what she was doing was wrong and taking risks.

"The pattern continued… and during this time Ms Jones continued to teach her victim and the abuse – the affair as it were – came to light when Ms Jones' husband began to suspect his wife was having an extra-marital affair."

A victim impact statement from the schoolgirl's family, which was written earlier this year, said: "She is in no doubt in her mind that they were in love and would have preferred it to have continued.

"However, after numerous discussions, she is aware it is something that should not have happened in the first place."

Judge Chris Smith heard that Jones expressed "genuine remorse."

Defending, Mr Mochrie, added: "She takes this very seriously and has punished herself again and again and again."

The court heard that the mother-of-one would never teach again but a sexual harm prevention order would not be made.
