A nationally-acclaimed headteacher is facing jail after being convicted of having underage sex with two teenage boys in the 1980s.

Anne Lakey, 55, from Stanley, County Durham, was found guilty of 13 counts of indecent assault on a boy of 13 or 14 and another boy aged 15 over a three-year period following a trial at Teesside Crown Court.

She has been suspended from her role as chief executive of the Durham Federation, in charge of two secondary schools, since the younger complainant sent an accusing email in December 2012.

She was a national leader in education, lauded for improving the exam performance at her schools, but her respectable professional persona hid a sordid past.

She seduced one lad in his school uniform when he was aged 13 or 14 after letting him watch her bathe, then encouraged another boy aged 15 to sneak into her tent during a camp and she took his virginity too.

Lakey, who was a history and RE teacher in Sunderland at the time of the allegations, has been married three times.

She denied all the allegations but admitted having a sexual relationship with the older complainant when he was 18 and she was in her early 30s.
