Teacher faces jail after booze fuelled sex with students
A 45-year-old woman teacher is facing jail after having alcohol fueled sex sessions with two teenage pupils at her home.
Jennifer Philp-Parsons groomed the boys and plied them with alcohol before having full sex with them.
A court heard she twice had sex with one of the 16 year olds in May at her home in Exmouth, Devon, and a month earlier had full sex with another 16 year old.
Philp-Parsons, who was head of music at a Devon college, admitted three charges of adult abuse of position of trust by having sexual activity with a boy aged between 13-17.

Prosecutor Lyndsey Baker told Exeter magistrates court that married teacher, who has children of her own, groomed some of her students.
Miss Baker said the burly teacher regularly gave one of the victims lifts to and from school and also took him to McDonalds for a meal and Costa for a coffee.
She also provided a kettle and toaster for them in the music room at the collage.
Miss Baker said the dark haired teacher then invited pupils to her home where she provided alcohol.
"Both victims had sexual intercourse with her at her home," she told the bench.
Rumours began circulating at the college and she made no comment in her first police interview.
But in a second interview Philp-Parsons, of Moorfield Road, Exmouth, "she fully admitted having sexual intercourse with one of the victims twice and a second boy once. Both were 16 at the time."
Miss Baker said the aggravating features were that "there was a degree of coercion, the use of alcohol, a considerable age difference of 30 years and a breach of trust."
She said the teacher could expected a custodial sentence of between one and two years.
The teacher sat with her head bowed as the magistrates decided that the case should be sentenced by a judge at the city's Crown Court next month.
She was granted conditional bail and left with her husband.
A Devon County Council spokesman said:"We suspended this member of staff as soon as the allegations came to light. Following today's guilty pleas we will now be starting disciplinary action."
