A teacher has been jailed after he groomed a female student for over a decade, had sex with her when she was still a teenager and eventually married her.

Now in his late 60s, the man, who cannot be identified, faced New Zealand‘s Napier District Court this week after he was found guilty of sexual connection and committing an indecent act with a girl aged 12 to 16.

The pair first met when the young girl started her first year at an Auckland high school in 2007 when she was just 12 and he was 50-years-old.

He began to pay her special attention and from the age of 13, he touched the young student on her hips and bottom, the New Zealand Herald reported.

When she moved schools the two remained in contact and the girl started spending more time at the teacher’s house.

Over time, the contact become more sexualised and progressed to the point the female student was naked.

They dated for two years while she was underage from 2008 to 2010.

The court heard that the teacher waited until the young girl was 16 to have her move in with him and begin having sex as he feared he would otherwise go to jail.

Initially a secret, the relationship was discovered by the girl’s mother who eventually accepted it – and the pair moved from Auckland to Hawkes Bay.

When she was 22 the pair married but the relationship soon broke down.

The woman moved to Australia and reported the teacher to NSW Police in 2021, resulting in his arrest in New Zealand the following year. 

The court heard the woman had dropped out of school and battled with addiction. She and the teacher had used cannabis together on occasion.

Judge Richard Earwaker said the teacher’s sexualised treatment of the girl was ‘premeditated criminal behaviour’.

‘You were a teacher. She was 12 to 15. You were a person of authority she looked up to,’ he told the court.

Judge Earwaker sentenced the teacher to two years and eight months in prison. He was also placed on the child sex offender register.
