MARRIED teacher Kandice Barber kept a selection of sexy pictures on her phone in a file called ‘FOR MY EYES ONLY’ .
The school mistress, 35, claimed she hid the steamy snaps to tease her husband but was incredibly careful over their security.
The blonde, convicted of sex with a pupil in a field and sending him a video of her pleasuring herself on a bed surrounded by sex toys, claimed her Snapchat must have been hacked.
Barber said: “I have pictures on snapchat under ‘for my eyes only’ that I have taken to send to my husband.
"It is in that private section because my youngest son is often playing on my phone and I wouldn’t want him to see it accidentally. I have never sent these pictures to a student."
Despite claiming her phone must have been hacked Barber still deleted messages she swapped with the schoolboy, saying she “was really scared” she might lose her job.
'IT'S A JOKE'
She claimed she only ever messaged the boy because she believed he was unhappy sitting next to a classmate – and the problem was so urgent it could not wait.
Barber said: "I was concerned if I had left it until the next morning that there was going to be an explosion, a big problem. I wanted to avoid it."
Despite the claims the teacher was still convicted today of one count of causing/inciting a child to engage in sexual activity after a retrial at Amersham Law Courts.
Her husband Daniel shouted "it's a joke" as the jurors delivered their verdict.
Barber was cleared of two other counts of causing/inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
This related to engaging in a sex act with the teenager in her 4×4 on the driveway ofher martial home in Wendover, Bucks, and performing a sex act on him in woodland.
She was previously found guilty of sending a video of herself surrounded by sex toys as she performed a sex act on herself.
Barber was also convicted after her first trial last year of messaging a topless picture to the boy on Snapchat.
Jurors heard how the teacher began messaging the pupil in 2018 after taking his phone number at a school sports day prize-giving event.
Their texts soon turned "sexual" and Barber later picked him up in her 4×4 car before driving to a field.
Barber, whose three children are all school age, then had sex with the boy.
The teacher continued to send the boy sordid texts – even while teaching him in class.
One message read: "You cannot make me blush when I am teaching now, poker face."
A schoolboy also claimed he saw messages from Barber, asking: "Do you prefer boobs or bum?”
The boy also showed a pal a shower selfie showing Barber's face and a picture of the supply teacher bending over a bed.
And he told one classmate "I s*****d her" when describing their outdoor sex.
Despite the claims, her husband defended Barber in court – telling jurors their marriage is as "strong" as ever.
Mr Barber, who previously referred to his wife as his "rock", said he was unaffected by his wife's conviction for sending X-rated pictures.
The delivery driver added: "Our relationship is how it is today, it has never changed. We have always been good and we have always been strong."
He added: "When my wife is on the phone, I am not one of those people who constantly looks at her to see who she is on the phone to. I have full faith in her."
Jurors last year at Aylesbury Crown Court were unable to reach verdicts on three charges of causing or inciting a child aged under 16 to engage in a sexual act.
Barber was acquitted of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activities while in a position of trust at her previous trial.
She was previously convicted of sexual communication with a child and causing a child to watch a sexual act by a person in a position of trust.
Barber has now been bailed ahead ofa hearing tomorrow morning. She will be sentenced on February 15.
