Cumbria teacher ‘sentenced’ for affair with schoolgirl

Our thanks to Steve for this story.

A teacher in Cumbria groomed a 15yo schoolgirl, and they ‘counted down the days’ until her 16th birthday. The teacher admitted later having a sexual relationship with the girl. The (male) judge at the hearing ‘punished’ the teacher with a suspended sentence. Can you guess, in the light of these facts, the gender of the teacher? Of course you can.

The final line of the article refers to a remark made by the judge:

He also said the relationship appeared to be a case of “mutual affection”.

We can’t imagine this being used as a mitigating circumstance in cases involving male teachers having sexual relationships with schoolgirls, and quite rightly. Why are women not held accountable to the same standards as men?
