"Hot for Teacher" trial continues

The 26-year-old biology teacher and Western graduate accused of having sex with British teenage boys scolded a male student she had slept with when he got close to another girl at a party, a court heard Friday.

According to the Canadian Press, after the 15-year-old boy was seen "getting with" another girl at the New Year's Eve party, Otterville, Ontario-born Amy Gehring had an angry outburst, a teenager who attended the party testified.

Gehring confronted the boy in a bedroom, the girl claimed.

"She was very angry towards [him]," said the now 17-year-old girl, who testified via video link. "She said that he was a whore."

The teenage girl also testified Gehring told her about her sex life and admitted to sleeping with two male students, giving details of the sex she had on one occasion with one of the boys.

"She said it didn't last too long," the girl told the jury. "I asked her if she used contraception and she said no – she took the morning-after pill."

Gehring has pleaded not guilty to five counts of indecent assault. The charges are based on allegations she had sex three times with the boy focused on in testimony Friday. She is also accused of having sex with his 14-year-old brother and a 15-year-old boy at the same party.

Gehring graduated from Western in June 2000 and moved to Surrey, England shortly afterwards. The accusations relate to events in late November and December 2000. She was charged last February.

On Thursday, the court heard a teen testify that Gehring told him she had masturbated one of the boys and had sex with him on a park bench.

Another teenage girl claimed Gehring confessed she had sex with one of the 15-year-old boys on New Year's Eve during a sleepover at another girl's house.
