Teacher 'wanted to be teen's sex slave', May 30, 2008 

A MELBOURNE female teacher charged with sexually penetrating a 
15-year-old student urged the boy to treat her like a sex slave, court 
documents show.

Nazira Rafei, 25, who is a teacher at a Melbourne high school, is 
charged with one count of sexually penetrating a child under 16 and four 
counts of an indecent act with a child under 16.

She is also charged with trying to conceal the relationship by making an 
unwarranted demand on the boy.

During a brief filing hearing at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court today, 
her lawyer, Steve Pica, indicated Rafei would plead not guilty.

"This case is likely to attract a fair degree of media attention," Mr 
Pica told the court.

"I do want to place on the record that my client has been fully 
co-operative with police and is pleading not guilty."

Police charge sheets tendered to the court allege she had sexual 
intercourse with a child under her "care, supervision or authority".

On another occasion, it is alleged, the teacher told the student to 
"treat her like a sex slave" as she lay on top of him pinching his 
nipples in the back seat of her car.

Another charge relates to the teacher allegedly kissing the student on 
his lips and touching his genitals through clothing.

The case was adjourned for committal mention on August 29 at the same
