Sugar Daddy, 45, teacher fired for buying woman, 20, drugs and lingerie for sex

A teacher has been suspended indefinitely after buying drugs, condoms and underwear for a "vulnerable" 20-year-old woman he met on a sugar daddy website.

Honiton Community College vice-principal Andy Holt, 45, who held the post for 20 years, was found guilty of bringing the profession into disrepute after a hearing in Devon, reports DevonLive.

The panel heard that Holt funded the woman's Class A drug habit after meeting her through a ‘sugar daddy’ website called ‘Seeking Arrangements’.

On 29 April 2020 the College was contacted anonymously by Individual A who made a number of allegations against Holt nd showed messages between the pair.

The unidentified woman said Holt decided on an arrangement whereby he would provide her with clothes, food and money for her rent.

Initially she was expected to meet him once a week but it became more frequent, and there were also weekends away. She told the panel: “You would have to have sex, but I could do, or not do, anything I wanted."

However, she said in evidence that around two years after the arrangement began, they started taking cocaine together.

She had been taking drugs on her own before that but her drug problem got out of control when he started paying for drugs.

The report says: "In her written statement Individual A said that she became dependent on drugs and felt she had to see Mr Holt because of the drugs, whereas she felt he was hoping to have sex with her."

The report heard that she "wanted to escape that way of life, but that Mr Holt was aware of her drug dependency and she believed he would message her when he knew she would be craving drugs."

The panel concluded Mr Holt understood Individual A’s dependency and potential to relapse, given the use of words such as 'withdrawal' and 'craving' in an email exchange with her.

The panel also concluded that Holt "engaged in a relationship with Individual A whereby he exchanged benefits (including but not limited to money) wholly or partly in return for sexual activity with her."

Individual A, as the woman was referred to, told the panel hearing that she undertook sex work prior to and during her arrangement with Holt.

In her oral evidence she alleged that Mr Holt would pay for accommodation, and drive her there, so that she could undertake sex work.

However the hearing found him not guilty of encouraging her to engage in sex work.

Even still, Mr Holt remains prohibited from teaching indefinitely, according to the panel. He may apply for the prohibition order to be set aside, but not until July 1 2027.
