Married trainer’s weird excuse in pupil intercourse trial

A teacher accused of having sex with a teenage student has provided a bizarre explanation as to why the alleged rendezvous with the student was not possible.

Kandice Barber, 35, is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student several times, including on her four-wheel drive and in a field, and having sex with him in the driveway of her family’s home.

The teenager claims one of the incidents occurred on October 10, 2018. However, Ms. Barber, who has three children, said her schedule was too busy to allow time for an affair.

“It couldn’t be possible … on October 10th I had a meeting with the care organization that started at 4:30 p.m. and (the officer) probably left at 6:30 p.m.,” she reportedly told the court on Friday (local time)) .

The woman from Buckinghamshire in the UK claimed that she and her husband tried to foster a child until they decided to have a baby themselves.

After meeting with the adoption agency, she said she should have “made packed lunches for my children for the next day and sorted out their school uniforms.”

Around the dates she allegedly met the teen for sex, Ms. Barber listed a number of social commitments that she claimed had deterred her from the illegal activities.

She went to a concert with a friend on October 11 and reportedly had a friend with her on another occasion before taking her to the airport.

It was alleged in court that the mother searched “good remote areas” and “alibi” before allegedly having sex with the teenager.

The court heard that she conducted a series of searches on her phone a month before the student allegedly had sex.

Detective Constable Collette Parker said Ms. Barber looked up at 5:00 am on September 30th to find “what is the relationship title of someone you are having an affair with”.

She reportedly searched for the words “alibi” later that day, then “when you have a plan of where you have been” and “a lie about where you have been”.

The following evening she allegedly searched “good remote areas” and “Holiday Inn Wycombe” – a facility in Buckinghamshire.

The story goes on

Ms. Barber has also been accused of texting the boy to request that he delete photos and messages she sent him and block her number.

She previously claimed that due to her height of 152 cm, she was physically unable to perform any of the sexual acts she was accused of.

She has denied ever having intercourse with the boy.

The process continues.
