London, Aug 19 (ANI): A music teacher in Britain has confessed that she had a lesbian relationship with a teenage pupil.

Helen Goddard, who is called Jazz Lady by her students, could now face a 14-year prison sentence for it.

The 26-year-old woman taught the trumpet to girls at the City of London School for Girls, when she started having an illicit relationship with one of her students aged 15.

But her colleague was alerted about the affair by an anonymous tip off, which led to the disclosure, the Telegraph reports.

Now, she has admitted six counts of sexual activity with the girl between February and July this year.

Surprisingly, the parents of the girl, both highly educated professionals, are understood to be happy for the relationship to resume once she turns 16 in a few months.

Meanwhile, officers of the City of London police confiscated her mobile phone and examined it for evidence of any inappropriate text messages sent by her to the girl.

Helen pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court following which Judge Anthony Pitts said that sentencing options were open.

He said: "You pleaded guilty to these matters. They are obviously serious charges."

Currently, the Jazz Lady is released on bail and sentencing has been adjourned until September 21. (ANI)
