A teacher who was found half-naked in a layby and caught having sex with one of her teenage pupils has been banned from the classroom for two years.
Eppie Sprung Dawson, 27, was found ‘unfit to teach’ by a disciplinary hearing in Edinburgh yesterday.
She agreed to being struck off and admitted having sex with Matthew Robinson last December, when he was 17 years old.
She said: ‘On the 9th of February I was convicted at Dumfries Sheriff Court.
‘I engaged in sexual intercourse with him; Contrary to Section 42 of the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009.
‘I was sentenced on 18 September 2013 and sentenced to a Community Payback Order and made subject to the sex offenders register.
‘I readily and willingly consent to being removed and understand that I will be prohibited from teaching for a period of two years.’
Earlier this year the teacher, Sprung Dawson admitted having sex with someone under 18, while in a position of trust.
She lost her job at St Joseph’s College and split from her husband of two years, Ranald.
The controversial case first hit the headlines in July when she appeared at Dumfries Sheriff Court and admitted having sex with someone under 18, while in a position of trust.
The pair had been at a school dance before driving to an isolated spot where they had sex where they were caught by officers patrolling the area, just four days before Christmas last year.
Aside being struck from the teaching register, Mrs Sprung Dawson was placed on the sex offenders register and ordered to receive counselling as part of a community payback order.
