Cheryl Mottram, prosecutor, told Liverpool Crown Court: "She remembers that Lydia was enthusiastic about the meeting and that she had bought new underwear … the Crown clearly anticipates a sexual encounter."

In court, Beattie-Milligan, who had 25 years of experience, claimed that she had only used his mobile number to support & # 39; despite being against school policy.

The boy was troubled by anxiety problems and Beattie-Milligan said she had come close to him because she was also going through a difficult time.

She also claimed that she had arranged the meeting in the hotel room because she realized that she had crossed a line in their teacher-student relationship and wanted to explain that to him.

But a jury only took an hour to judge her for arranging a child after sexual care.

Liverpool Crown Court heard that the teaching assistant was asked if she loved the boy, to which she replied: & You hit my head, so maybe & # 39;

Concern about Beattie-Milligan's behavior was first expressed by another staff member who found that they were & # 39; too familiar & # 39; was with the boy and paid him special attention.

After giving him bonus art points, the staff member joked with the boy that he should be her favorite, at which point he showed him his cell phone with messages from her who arranged a night for them at a hotel on a Saturday night.

She was immediately suspended and the police were informed.

When asked about court reports, Beattie-Milligan defended himself by saying: & I give everyone a kiss on my lyrics & # 39 ;.

She also said: & I was then all over the place … Now I think it was completely wrong. He made me happy. I think I was a little drunk, I can't remember sending it. & # 39;

Beattie-Milligan claimed that a message said: & # 39; I have all these feelings, so wrong, but I can't help it & # 39; related to emotional feelings and that it didn't mean & I wanted to jump into bed with him & # 39 ;.

She also said that other text messages about & # 39; are really getting excited & # 39; were about a learning facilitator at school, and that was why her girlfriend had said she would call her Mrs. Robinson.
