These are the photos a teacher accused of sex with a schoolboy didn’t want you to see, after two failed court bids to keep her name a secret.
Monica Elizabeth Young, 23, is in police custody accused of ‘aggravated sexual intercourse’ with a pupil, 14, during school hours in recent weeks.
Former friends of Young’s revealed happy pictures of the teacher with her fiance – who she had met at high school and was soon to marry – on Tuesday.
Sources described the teacher as having a ‘goody goody’ reputation and said many don’t believe the charges against the former Big W worker.
The exclusive pictures emerged as court documents revealed further detail about how and when the alleged offending occurred – including claims she had sex with the boy three times in the one day.

Documents tendered in Bankstown Local Court said Young is charged with twice having sexual intercourse with the boy between 9am and 4pm on June 24.
She also stands accused of intentionally sexually touching the boy on that day.
More than a week later, on July 3, the teacher is accused of intentionally sexually touching the boy, between 8am and 3.30pm.
She allegedly had aggravated sexual intercourse with him three times that afternoon three times, between 2pm and 3pm, and 3pm and 3.30pm.
Then between July 4 and July 6, she’s accused of intentionally carrying out a sexual act with a child, and inciting a child to sexually touch a person.
A source with knowledge of the police investigation said the incitement charges relate to an alleged video exchange via Snapchat.
There, Young is accused of performing a sex act upon herself in a video message for the boy and seeking one from the alleged victim in return.
Young has denied any ‘sexual impropriety’ through her lawyer and faces up to 12 years’ imprisonment if found guilty of an aggravated sex assault charge.

Young was arrested by Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad detectives about 7am on Friday morning.
In further blows, she was both denied bail and a request to extend a non-publication order to her name at Bankstown Local Court on Monday.
In refusing her bail, Magistrate Glenn Walsh said Young had allegedly ‘tried to get around’ the police investigation after learning of its existence.
She allegedly did that by changing her Snapchat username and attempting to contact the boy’s mother to ”explain away’ the circumstances of conduct’.
A police prosecutor had raised fears Young could attempt to interfere with witnesses in the investigation.
The prosecutor, who gave her name only by Ms Gardiner, described it as an ‘overwhelmingly strong’ case – with Snapchat and CCTV evidence.
But her barrister Geoff Harrison said she had now spent three days in custody and had ‘strong incentive’ to obey ‘house arrest’ bail conditions.
She had no criminal record, could offer $50,000 surety and stay with her grandmother, he said.
A non-publication order on Ms Young’s name was refused after Mr Harrison argued identifying her could lead to the school where she worked being identified.
He said a non-publication order would help ensure a fair trial with ‘less publication’.
But Mr Walsh said there was no evidence before him to ‘support the necessity of making an order’.
Young was remanded in custody to face court at a later date.
