Blond Teacher, 28yo denies illicit relationship with 16yo school student
Eleanor “Ellie” Wilson, 28, of Gloucestershire, England, is alleged to share a relationship with a 16-year-old teenager on August 2, 2015.
Before her arrest, she was a Physics teacher at a high school in Bristol England. She was forced to quit after the charges were brought against her.
She was charged with ‘Abuse of position’ and ‘4 counts of active physical-relationship with a minor.’
The blond former teacher was 28-year-old at the time of the alleged offense.
This Friday, she appeared before Bristol Crown Court to state her plea. She appeared before the court without legal representation, because she is yet to appoint legal representation.
During the proceeding, the accused was asked if she wanted to make her plea.
To which she replied:
I know what I want to plead, I want to plead not guilty.
The case is being heard by Judge James Patrick. He asked the accused if she wanted to have a jury trial.
To which she affirmed by saying: ‘Yes.’
Ms. Wilson has been released on a bail which is unconditional in nature.
Her trial will begin on October 1, 2018, which is going to be a four-day trial. The case will be heard by Bristol Crown Court.
