Monica Young with her fiance. She denies any impropriety with her student (not pictured)
A female teacher stands accused of driving a male student, 14, to a western Sydney park after school and clambering on top of him to have sex in her car.
Daily Mail Australia can exclusively reveal details of the most serious allegation detectives have made against geography teacher Monica Elizabeth Young, 23.
A police statement of facts tendered in court said Young – who is charged with repeated sex with the boy – is accused of having intercourse with her pupil in her car that afternoon.
Investigators have obtained CCTV footage allegedly showing Young’s car approaching the park, according to material before the court.
But the recordings do not capture what happened inside the vehicle. And Young, who was released from prison on Friday, vehemently denies any sex occurred, the New South Wales Supreme Court has heard.

Police also allege in court documents that, on another occasion, the boy put his hand inside Young’s tights and fondled her vagina in a classroom.
Young is accused of having incited the boy to touch her by placing his hand on her thigh.
Police believe that incident may have been seen by another student, describing him in court as a ‘potential witness’.
But a court has heard the boy has declined to make a statement to police and has retained a lawyer to represent him.
Young vehemently denies she had sex with a 14-year-old boy in her care
After a month behind bars at Silverwater Women’s Prison, Young – who has no criminal record – was granted bail in a last ditch bid to the NSW Supreme Court on Thursday.
At hearing, her barrister Ian Lloyd QC told the court that the Crown was ‘exaggerating’ when prosecutors claimed there was CCTV showing she had placed the boy’s hand on her leg.
Quoting from the police fact sheet, Mr Lloyd said: ‘(The victim) says she placed his hand down her tights.
‘It’s then said this was captured by CCTV which shows the victim’s arm outstretched, his hand hidden under the table.
‘That’s the true statement of what the CCTV shows. It does not show any sexual assault.’
Likewise, Mr Lloyd told the court a Snapchat she sent to the boy of herself lying on the bed saying ‘I’m waiting for him’ did not show any sexual activity.
He told the court she was fully clothed at the time.
Mr Lloyd also told the judge Young had a reason to be in possession of a tube of lubricant that the boy apparently asked his friend to buy him.
‘My strong instructions are the complainant was with other boys and there was some giggling going on.
‘And she saw him with the tube of lubricant and confiscated from him … you may well think that’s appropriate to do.’
Young’s fiance is reportedly standing by her throughout the ordeal but has not appeared with her family at court

The Crown opposed bail, arguing that the case against Young ‘is not weak at all’ and was supported by CCTV footage.
Prosecutor Scott Jaegar claimed Young could pose a risk to the alleged victim – who did not want her released in case she targeted ‘other children’.

Mr Jaegar argued there was a risk that Young could offend further.
When the student’s mother realised something was going on, Young changed her Snapchat identity to that of a young boy ‘so not to arouse suspicion’, Mr Jaegar told the court.
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Campbell said the allegations against Young were ‘frankly shocking’.
But he granted her bail with onerous conditions including house arrest and her family having to cough up $850,000 should she breach her conditions.
She must report daily to the local police station and present herself at the front door to any officer who checks on her curfew.
Her solicitor Gazi Abbas has previously indicated Young, who is engaged to be married, will take the matter to trial.
‘At this stage there is no real corroboration of any of the complaints,’ a source familiar with the investigation said. ‘It’s his words against hers.’
The case returns to court on September 2. Her job at the school has been terminated.
