After being accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student, a TEACHER Rebecca Joynes is about to go on trial.
Two counts of sexual activity with a child have been brought against 28-year-old Rebecca Joynes.
Today was her first time showing up at Manchester Crown Court.
The defendant, who attended the hearing in a beige jacket, a white blouse, and black pants, said nothing other than to confirm her name and enter not-guilty pleas to both accusations.
The accusations include a boy who cannot be identified legally.
They both began in October 2021.
Joynes, of Salford, was given bail with the restrictions that she not speak to any witnesses for the prosecution and not have any unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18.
Her trial was scheduled for May and was supposed to last four days.
Joynes was forewarned by Judge Rachel Smith that she would also be needed to appear at two other sessions in the matter in October.
