TAIPEI, TAIWAN - A Taekwondo coach of an unidentified Taipei County junior high school was suspected of guiding her 15-year-old student to have sex with her last month, local media reported yesterday.
The teenager alleged that he and his 29-year-old coach, both not identified by the reports, had kissed each other many times when going out together for Taekwondo tournaments in March, and claimed that they even had sex at the school's Taekwondo gym, said the Apple Daily.
Following the allegation, the woman posted a note admitting having fed her students her breast milk on the social networking site Facebook.
The coach, a mother of two kids, denied having slept with the boy despite her intimate ties with him. She confessed to having offered the students her breast milk. But she stressed that the milk was preserved in the freezer bags and no physical contact between her and the students was involved, the TV news channel TVBS reported.
"It is normal for students to have a crush on their teachers at school, but I would never do anything out of line with my students," the coach, who was divorced earlier this year, was quoted as saying by the channel.
The alleged relationship was exposed after the student consulted with the school's counselor, saying he was so depressed that he wanted to commit suicide after the coach's breakup with him.
The school suspended the coach from teaching and formed a committee to look into the case but no conclusion has been made yet, said the newspaper.
According to the law, people who have sex with a person under 16 could be sentenced to up to seven years imprisonment.
