Amelia Tat

A former teacher who was accused of having sexual relationship with a student has admitted having a sexual relationship with the student in her classroom after seducing him with flirty Snapchats.

Amelia Tat, 27, a former teacher at Jack Jouett Middle School faces up to 20 years behind bars after pleading guilty to two counts of carnal knowledge of a minor  — sexual intercourse — with a minor and one of taking indecent liberties with a child..

Investigators say Tat started contacting the student outside of school by Instagram and Snapchat and asking personal questions.

She then asked the boy to "stay late and help her after class" before the pair eventually had sex in her classroom.

Texting continued and the two later had sex again at Tat's apartment in Lynchburg, Virginia, after she picked him up from a baseball game.

But the pair were caught out after the victim's mom found messages from Tat on his phone and discovered "something going on", prosecutor Darby Lowe said.

She had been working as a science teacher at the teen's school when the relationship happened in 2015.

By the time the teen boy's mom went to police she had moved to another school.

During a plea deal at Albemarle Circuit Court on Friday Tat admitted two counts of carnal knowledge.

She could be jailed for 20 years on each count and fined $200,000 when sentenced in May 1.
