Sydney teacher Monica Young denies sex acts with teenage student
A Sydney high school teacher will face trial after formally denying engaging in nearly a dozen sexual acts with a student.
Monica Elizabeth Young, 23, is accused of meeting the student at his workplace and other locations and staying in contact over Snapchat over two weeks in mid-2020.
One piece of CCTV footage allegedly shows her moving the boy’s hand under a table towards her groin, a court has previously heard.
Young on Monday faced the Downing Centre District Court, pleading not guilty to five counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a boy aged 14 to 16.
She also formally denied two charges of intentionally sexually touching a child, two sexual incitement charges and a charge of intentionally doing a sexual act towards a child.
