Crown and defence lawyers at the trial of Carolyn Amy Hood were at odds during closing arguments Friday over whether the former Pictou County teacher is criminally responsible for alleged sex crimes involving teenaged boys.

Hood, 39, of Stellarton, who goes by her middle name Amy, will learn the verdict in Pictou provincial court on April 6.

She was charged in January 2014 with one count of sexual assault, one count of sexual interference, two counts of luring minors over the internet for a sexual purpose and two counts of sexual exploitation of a young person.

Hood was a Grade 6 teacher at Thorburn Consolidated School during the time when the alleged incidents occurred, between June and September 2013.

The incidents allegedly involved two former male students of Hood's, who were 15 at the time.

The court has heard that Hood was exchanging text messages of a sexual nature with the students, with some of the text messages including pictures. Hood also allegedly performed oral sex on a student in her vehicle.  (more...)
