Lauren Harrington-Cooper, Former Teacher, Hit With More Sex Charges

Posted: Updated:

A teacher already arrested twice for allegedly having sex with two students has been accused of having improper contact with two other teens.

Lauren Harrington-Cooper was jailed back in December and then again in January after the former Plymouth, Pa., teacher at Wyoming Valley West High School was accused of having sex with 18-year-old and 17-year-old students.

Now, The Citizens' Voice reports, the married educator is accused of making inappropriate contact with two other teenagers, one of whom was her former student.

Arrest records obtained by the paper said Harrington-Cooper had "sexually suggestive conversations" with her 16-year-old former student and that he eventually introduced her to a 17-year-old student with whom she had "sexually explicit conversations."

The alleged texts and phone calls carried on from October 2012 to after Harrington-Cooper was arrested in December, the documents said.

Harrington-Cooper denied the allegations despite prosecutors showing printouts of alleged texts sent by the former teacher, according to the Times-Leader.

The Citizens' Voice details one alleged encounter between Harrington-Cooper and the 17-year-old:

The 16-year-old dropped the 17-year-old off and the older boy got into Harrington-Cooper's vehicle, investigators said. Harrington-Cooper and the teenager fondled each other outside their clothing and talked about having sex, but the 17-year-old felt uncomfortable because they were not in a secluded area.

In a previous story, The Citizens' Voice detailed some of Harrington-Cooper's alleged sexual encounters with two other students.

An 18-year-old boy told police he was introduced to Harrington-Cooper through his sister, after the teacher told his sister she thought he was "hot."

Harrington-Cooper allegedly had sex with the 18-year-old twice and performed oral sex on him three times.

The International Business Times found Facebook photos of Harrington-Cooper apparently posted by her husband.

The caption for one photo read, "Loving every minute with my wonderful, beautiful wife, Lauren.”

The Times-Leader reports that Harrington-Cooper resigned on Jan. 22.
