Killer teacher Pamela Smart has turned to her twisted groupies in a sick scheme to be set free!

The 51-year-old — who’s serving life without parole for luring her teenaged student lover into murdering her husband in 1990 — has launched a brassy online petition in a bid to win a pardon.

“I will never give up fighting because I have already lost 25 years of my life for a crime I never committed,” Smart wrote in a letter obtained exclusively by

“It is a struggle every day, but I have hope that one day this terrible injustice will be righted!”

During a nationally televised trial, prosecutors said Smart — then a media coordinator at a New Hampshire high school — lured 15-year-old Billy Flynn into her bed.

Then she persuaded Flynn to recruit three pals to kill her husband, Gregg, a 24-year-old insurance salesman.

On May 1, 1990, Flynn and Patrick Randall, 17, burst into the couple’s Derry, N.H., condo. As Randall held a knife to Gregg’s throat, Flynn fired a bullet into his head.

Smart — whose story inspired the Nicole Kidman film To Die For — was found guilty of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and witness tampering.

Smart, who’s behind bars at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in New York, ramped up her campaign for freedom after Flynn and Randall walked free on parole in 2015.

Their release enraged her parents, Linda and John Wojas, who insisted Flynn lied when he claimed Smart ordered him to execute the heinous hit.

“My daughter has spent nearly three decades in prison for something she didn’t do — and the people who murdered Gregg, my son-in-law, are roaming free!” Linda, 76, told Radar. “Does that sound like a fair and just resolution to you?”

She added: “Pam is the same person she always was — a good and decent and kind kid who feels awful for having an affair with Flynn.”

Smart’s online pardon petition has gotten 4,000 signatures, but her late husband’s uncle pooh-poohed her chance at freedom.

“Of course, she thinks she’s innocent,” sniped Jim Smart. “Prisons are full of innocent people.”
