A teacher jailed for having sex with a pupil is flirting with lads at her new job as a gate guard while on temporary release from prison.
Kandice Barber, 37, who slept with the 15-year-old boy in a field, has been working at the council site in Hounslow, West London, since May.
But sources say the mother-of-three has been loving being at a council site in west London since May, according to The Sun.
One of the sources was reported to have said: ‘Kandice turned up about two months ago, which was a complete shock because she should have still been behind bars.’
Barber, from Wendover, Buckinghamshire, was found to have sent a student nude images of herself and threatened to ‘take him down’ if he told staff about their encounters.

The 37-year-old is now said to be ‘flirting with lads’ in her new job checking security passes and letting in trucks on to the building site.
Last year, it was revealed that Barber was still seeing her husband, Daniel
The source was said to have continued: ‘She’s attractive looking, so she’s already proving a hit with the lads, who have no idea about her background.
‘It’s no secret she’s a massive flirt and lots of the staff there have already noticed her.’
Wates Construction, her current employer, confirmed Barber is on temporary release.
Barber has been pictured wearing a hard hat to check security passes on the construction site, letting in trucks and stopping any traffic and pedestrians.
Temporary release is designed to help reintegrate inmates before their release.
Barber was found to have abused an underage student at a school in Princes Risborough, sending him topless photos.
She later drove them to a field where they had sex, courts heard.
The victim said the assault took place between October 11, 2018 and immediately before the half-term.
Ultimately, Barber was reported after a photo shared with the child was circulated widely and reached the head teacher of the school.
She was found guilty of one count of causing or inciting a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity.
At another trial the year before, Barber was convicted of sending a topless picture of herself to the boy and a video in which she was pleasuring herself with a sex toy.
After the second trial at Aylesbury Crown Court, Recorder Bal Dhaliwal described Barber’s grooming of the teenager as ‘beyond despicable.’
Last year, it was revealed that she was still seeing her husband, Daniel.
He posted a photo after her sentence featuring a Superman t-shirt and kissing emoji alongside a caption saying ‘always’.
At the time, Daniel described the verdict as ‘a joke’.
Teacher Kandice Barber, 35, leaves Aylesbury Crown Court after being found guilty of two sex offense charges related to sending topless Snapchat pictures to a 15-year-old student.
Jailing Barber at Aylesbury Crown Court in 2021, Recorder Bal Dhaliwal said Barber had ‘acted in gross breach of trust’ and had taken ‘advantage of a child in your care and groomed him for your own sexual gratification’.
She told the teacher: ‘The victim was a 15-year-old boy in his final year at school. You had control and authority over him. He felt drawn in by you due to the compliments, you caused him to engage in sex with you while he was a pupil in your care.’
