lesbian yass high school teacher accused teenage girl of leading her on

A female teacher accused a teenage girl of ‘leading her on’ before having sex with her in a shed, a court has heard.  

Lee Brown, who taught at Yass High School near Canberra, had sex with the then-teen in a shed located in the garden of her home in 2007.

The victim, who can’t be named for legal reasons, and her friend were staying at the 60-year-old’s house overnight during at visit to Canberra in the school holidays. 

The former student said she was sitting on a couch when they started kissing. But the girl eventually said ‘no’ and asked to stop as things escalated, the ABC reported.

Brown allegedly responded: ‘What did you expect? You sat yourself astride me. You obviously wanted it.’

The victim said she then apologised profusely for the misunderstanding.

‘I felt guilty. I felt horrible. I felt it was all my fault. She said I led her on,’ the girl said.

‘I felt bad about making her upset, so when she went to do it again I just let her do it. It felt very uncomfortable, very unpleasant.’

She made a statement to police in 2013. Brown wasn’t interviewed by police until 2017. 

Brown admitted to performing oral sex on the teenager, but denied claims she digitally penetrated her. 

The teacher told police that despite knowing what she was doing was wrong, she did not realise it was illegal.

She also argued she thought the girl initiated the tryst by kissing her.

She said the encounter at her house was the first time the pair had been sexual with each other.

Brown said they had discussed how the situation was wrong, and she told the girl the relationship had to end. 

‘She said she was comfortable with me. I just went along with it. It was a bad decision on my part,’ she said.

Brown resigned after the girl came clean to her mother about what happened. 

ACT Supreme Court Justice John Burns said he didn't think either the victim or Brown were lying about their version of events

She had previously spent time in jail for other offences against the same former student.

ACT Supreme Court Justice John Burns said he didn’t think either the victim or Brown were lying about their version of events, but he couldn’t be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the digital penetration had happened. 

Brown pleaded guilty on Monday to one count of sexual intercourse without consent.

She was found not guilty of two other sexual offences alleged to have occurred in her shed.

She will be sentenced in August.

Trump mocks Biden for covering up his ‘PLASTIC SURGERY’ with a mask

trump mocks biden for covering up his plastic surgery with a mask

President Donald Trump again mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask and asked a crowd in Pittsburgh why the Democrat would spend ‘all that money on the plastic surgery’ to cover up his face. 

‘He feels good about the mask,’ Trump riffed. ‘I wonder in the debate, it will be him and I on the stage, is he going to walk in with a mask?’  

The president had his predominantly mask-less audience in stitches, as he poked fun at Biden for mask-wearing on the same day that marked more than 200,000 Americans dying of COVID-19

During his hour and a half long appearance, Trump knocked Biden, but also complimented Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, who said earlier Tuesday he would vote for the president’s Supreme Court pick during an election year.  

‘But he was very good today,’ Trump said. ‘I have to tell you he was good. I was happy. Thank you Mitt.’

The same day the U.S. hit more than 200,000 coronavirus deaths, President Trump packed thousands of supporters together at an outdoor rally at the Pittsburgh International Airport 

Trump started out the rally by complimenting the Pittsburgh Steelers’ back-to-back wins, with the help of their quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was injured for most of last season. 

‘Big Ben!’ Trump exclaimed. 

When he spoke about the coronavirus crisis, he told the crowd that the ‘bottom line’ was that he saved ‘millions of lives,’ pointing to the original death toll estimate if the U.S. took zero social distancing precautions. He also said that Biden ‘did the worst job in history’ dealing with the last pandemic, the swine flu, which globally likely killed the amount of people that COVID-19 did just in the United States. 

Trump pretty quickly went after Biden for wearing masks.  

Medical experts say masks can prevent the spread of the coronavirus. 

‘I’ll be honest, he feels good about that mask, and that’s OK,’ Trump said of his rival. 

He then paused, waiting to drop his next line. 

‘I mean honestly, what the hell did he spend all that money on the plastic surgery if he’s going to cover it up with a mask,’ Trump said. 

The Western Pennsylvania audience cheered. 

The president continued down this path, asking his supporters: ‘The question is will he leave it on during the debate?’ 

Biden and Trump are slated to go head-to-head on the presidential debate stage a week from today in Cleveland, Ohio. 

‘It makes him feel comfortable,’ Trump said of mask-wearing, snickering at Biden for sometimes letting his mask ‘hang down on his ear.’  

President Trump made the comments at a rally Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he also mocked Biden's campaign for calling a 'lid' Tuesday morning, meaning the ex-veep wouldn't be traveling anywhere that day

Trump’s personal punch at Biden’s looks came as the president has vowed to take the ‘gloves off’ with just 42 days before the presidential election.   

New York Magazine reported last October that Trump has privately marveled at the ‘work’ he claims was done on Biden’s smooth 77-year-old face, with writer Olivia Nuzzi calling it a ‘minor obsession’ of the president. 

‘Those who know him say the president is against plastic surgery (by which I assume they don’t mean breast implants) and, especially, bad plastic surgery, and he considers it an all-too-common tragedy when someone has their face inexpertly altered,’ she wrote. 

For years, however, there’s been speculation around Trump’s own look. 

Controversial journalist Michael Wolff wrote in his first book on the administration that Ivanka Trump, who was on hand in Pittsburgh Tuesday night, would poke fun at her father’s ‘do and said it was due to ‘scalp reduction surgery.’ 

And the book alleged Trump was no longer a natural blond. 

In the opening scene of his niece Mary Trump’s unflattering portrayal, the new President Trump shows off his teeth to his family. 

‘I got my teeth whitened. What do you think?’ the president said, according to Mary Trump. 

Spokespeople for the Biden campaign did not respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment on whether the former vice president had plastic surgery, as Trump claimed. 

The president is taking the chance that he can be cavalier about the virus and still win, while Biden exerts caution – holding small, socially distant events and traveling less often than Trump. 

‘He’s the worst candidate,’ Trump uttered. ‘You know where he is today?’

‘He put out a “lid” today early in the morning, a lid means he’s not going to be anywhere today,’ Trump explained. ‘I’m working my ass off, I’m in Ohio, I’m in Texas, I’m in Florida, I’m in Michigan, I’m in Wisconsin.’   

The Biden campaign called a ‘lid’ for in-person events Tuesday morning, though the ex-vice president participated in two virtual fundraisers, leaking during the second one that he would be receiving Cindy McCain’s endorsement. That came via tweet shortly thereafter. 

The president also again alleged that his opponent was on drugs. 

After the Tuesday night rally, President Trump continued to slam Joe Biden on Twitter writing, 'I did more in 47 months than Joe Biden did in 47 years!'

‘This guy doesn’t have a clue. He doesn’t know where the hell he is. And they’ll give him a shot of something,’ Trump said. ‘What the hell is he taking? And we’d like to ask him and I said that. We want a drug test … we’ll both take it.’ 

‘It wasn’t Winston Churchill,’ Trump continued, pointing to Biden’s final Democratic debate performance against Bernie Sanders in March, which Trump claims was much too improved to be done without substances. ‘This wasn’t the greatest debate, but he got through, it was fine.’ 

The ex-veep will travel to North Carolina Wednesday and will likely participate in some sort of memorial service for Ruth Bader Ginsburg later this week. 

Trump is holding rallies Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 

He’ll nominate his Supreme Court pick to fill Ginsburg’s seat at 5 p.m. Saturday, directly before leaving for a rally. 

‘Watch the abuse that she will take,’ Trump told his crowd, as he’s promised to pick a woman.

But Trump disparaged other women during his time in Pittsburgh, prompting a ‘lock her up!’ cheer about Hillary Clinton, a throwback from 2016. 

He also ripped two of the so-called ‘squad’ members, saying of Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Somali refugee and American citizen, ‘She’s telling us how to run our country. How did you do where you came from?’ 

He knocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ‘green new deal,’ after again going on a tangent about windmills, despite their popularity as an energy resource in Pennsylvania. 

‘She’s not a good student, but she’s got a good line of crap,’ Trump said of AOC. 

The president also laughed about reporters experiencing violence while covering this summer’s protests.

Trump misremembered an incident involving MSNBC’s Ali Velshi, who was hit by a rubber bullet, as opposed to ‘hit with a canister of tear gas,’ as the president recalled. ‘Remember that beautiful sight?’ he said of Velshi being hit. 

The president also joyfully recounted a journalist being targeted by police. 

‘Sometimes they grab. They grab one guy. “I’m a reporter. I’m a reporter.” Get out of here. They threw him aside like he was a little bag of popcorn,’ Trump said. ‘Honestly, when you watch the crap that we have all had to take so long. When you see it it is actually a beautiful sight.’

Terrifying truth behind tiny black dots that pop up on your ceiling and kitchen tiles

terrifying truth behind tiny black dots that pop up on your ceiling and kitchen tiles

Mysterious black dots commonly found on ceilings, walls and kitchen tiles have been confirmed to be spider droppings.

A baffled woman turned to a Facebook cleaning group for answers after seeing the tiny dark specks in her home.  

The most popular response from group members – that the spots were made by spiders – was the correct one, an expert from the University of Sydney revealed. 

A baffled woman took to Facebook with an image of black dots in her home asking if anyone knew what they were

A baffled woman took to Facebook with an image of black dots in her home asking if anyone knew what they were 

The majority of answers said the dots were spider poo, and are more common in warmer months – which means bad news for Australians enjoying spring.  

Dieter Hochuli, an ecologist and professor at the University of Sydney, confirmed the spider theory was true. 

‘Spider and fly droppings look similar – and those small blobs are liquid nitrogen-rich poo,’ he told news.com.au

Spiders produce thick, liquid droppings which come in shades of white, gray, brown, or black. 

Professor Hochuli said there was nothing to worry about as they were quite common at this time of year. 

‘There is no public health risk about them. We live surrounded by hundreds of spiders in our day-to-day lives.’  

Dieter Hochuli, an ecologist and professor, said the droppings were not an issue

Social media users also chimed in with ways to remove them.

‘It happens a lot this time of year, spiders pooing everywhere, Dettox spray is good for it,’ one wrote.  

Others recommended wiping the droppings as soon as they’re spotted as that makes them easier to remove, and if left for too long could leave a yellow stain.

Even if not cleaned off immediately, the droppings can still be removed with water and a stiff brush, or bleach, depending on the surface.

The emotional father of an autistic boy who went missing in dense bushland has asked locals to leave out protein bars and revealed how to gain his trust.

William Wall, 14, was last seen heading out for his daily jog along the Yarra Ranges’ Warburton Trail at 6.45am on Tuesday, promising his family he would be back in 15 minutes.

But he never returned to his home in Launching Place.

More than 24-hours after his disappearance, hundreds of police and State Emergency Service volunteers are still prowling the bush in search of him.

William’s distraught father Shane issued an emotional plea and told locals who have offered to help that the high-functioning autistic teen will stay away from junk food.

‘He doesn’t like junk food, he prefers protein bars and fruit, that type of thing, he would go for that and it would be like catching a rat in a trap, not a problem,’ he told reporters on Wednesday. 

He advised people to remain calm if they do see William and tell him that his ‘mum wants to talk to him’.

‘Probably responds a bit better than coming to me in most cases, but just call him Will or William either way – he doesn’t respond to Bill,’ the distraught father said.

‘Just in a calm voice tell him “we have got health food bars for you mate, they’re yours, come and get them and we want you home”.’

Mr Wall struggled to fight back tears as he thanked volunteers, police, the SES and family members who had been searching all night.

‘I just want everyone to be safe,’ he said.

‘I never want to be in this situation but the people around here are fantastic. I mean, I’ve been in the valley for a long time and come from overseas but this has just blown me away.’

‘Actual support from local people, the Facebook community and the noticeboards and that, fantastic. Top notch and the police and SES, again, it has been great.’

‘I have hardly spoken to my wife much but they are liaising with them to look after her and I’m out helping where I can.’ 

William has a ten-year-old sister named Sophie, and two older brothers Jake, 17, and Harrison, 20, who have been out all night.

With the search taking more than 24-hours, Mr Wall says his son is a ‘pretty hardcore’ 14-year-old, who usually runs up to 30km.

As the search entered its second day, many locals were left fuming after being advised to keep an eye out for William, but not to breach Victoria’s COVID-19 restrictions by limiting outdoor time to two hours. 

‘In line with coronavirus restrictions, at this stage we do not require any assistance from the public,’ a post on the Eyewatch Yarra Ranges Police Facebook read. 

‘We want to say a big thank you however, for the all the offers we have received.’ 

Inspector Jason Goddard told 3AW they were encouraging residents to keep on the look out while out exercising and to report any sightings to Triple Zero immediately.

‘We really do want the local residents within this area to check their backyards and check their structures.’

Local resident Tom Osburg said he was willing to break COVID-19 restrictions to assist in the search. 

He believes search parties made up by local volunteers were a valuable resource. 

In June, autistic boy William Callaghan, was found by a lone volunteer after he went missing at Mount Disappointment.

The autistic non-verbal teenager spent two days in treacherous bushland before being found by volunteer Ben Gibbs.   

Mr Osburg said Melburnians should be given an exemption to be able to go and check their holiday homes for William Wall.

‘Let people come up, just for a couple of hours from Melbourne, just to check their holiday homes.’

Rescue crews spent Tuesday night searching the area after temperatures plummeted to just 4C.

While William is autistic, he is high-functioning and can communicate verbally.

He’s described as 177cm tall, being of slim build, having mousy brown hair and a lazy right eye.

He was last seen wearing a dark hoodie, dark-coloured track pants, black running shoes and had a hydration pack across his chest.
