    Talamua: Teacher jailed four years for sex offences (Sept 26 2013)

    In his written decision handed down today Justice Pierre Slicer says: “The crimes were committed against four students who attended a school at which the offender was a teacher, and occurred between March and May 2013. Each of the victims was under the care of the defendant as a teacher. His conduct varied but included acts of holding, kissing, touching the breast by hugging, and caressing of the breasts.

    “In one instance involving ‘L’ he undressed the girl and had sexual intercourse with her.

    “In another, he required a fourteen year old girl ‘S’ to stay behind and after the other students had left, held the girl by force despite her physical resistance and only stopped when he heard the noise of someone opening a door.”


    “The indecent assault was committed on a seventeen year old girl ‘I’, and involved the holding of the girl’s hands behind her back and kissing her on the lips. The offender desisted from his use of force when the girl struggled. The girl was scared and suffered the taunts and scolding by her parents and fellow church members. She feels shame for the conduct.”

    “The girls ‘A’ and ‘S’ were aged sixteen and fourteen respectively. Both have suffered from the conduct. The Court will accept the prosecution’s contention of 12 months imprisonment but because of plea, mitigating matters and the principle of totality, the sentence of one year imprisonment will be served consecutively with the sentences already imposed.”
