Lagos teacher jailed for s_3_xual assault of pupil

The Ikeja Special Offences Court has sentenced a teacher, Idowu Daniel, to seven years imprisonment for s_3_xually assaulting a 16-year-old student in a school.

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, however, held that the prosecution failed to establish the charge of defilement.

The judge said the confessional statement by the defendant, made voluntarily, showed that he s_3_xually assaulted the minor.

“The defendant admitted to have fondled the breast of the victim twice and tried to have s3_x with her but could not penetrate as she was a virgin.

“The defendant is hereby convicted on the charge of s3..xual assault of a child”, she ruled on Monday.

NAN reports that the 31-year-old convict pleaded for mercy when asked to speak.

“My lord, I am very sorry for what happened. I promise it will not happen again,” he told the court.

Justice Taiwo strongly chided Daniel for touching the teenager in a suggestive way.

“You are a teacher and you were touching the breast of your student. You would have gone for life if the victim had come to court to testify”, she said.

The judge earlier sentenced the convict to five years imprisonment, but increased to seven years after saying he had been in custody for three years.
