Hong Kong teacher faces trial for having sex with pupil

Hong Kong, April 15 (DPA) A married Hong Kong schoolteacher faced trial after police caught him engaged in a sex act with a 15-year-old pupil in his car, a news report said Wednesday.

Maths and sports teacher Yeung Tin-shun picked the girl up from school in April 2008 and drove her to a secluded lane where he persuaded her to perform oral sex on him, the Hong Kong Standard reported.

At a court hearing Tuesday, Yeung denied a charge of gross indecency towards a child under the age of 16. His case was adjourned until Wednesday when the hearing was to continue.

When questioned by police, the girl said she had enjoyed a “boyfriend-girlfriend” relationship with him for about a month before the incident in April 2008. She said she did not know he was married.

Yeung met the girl when he taught her fencing at her school and became intimate with her after hugging her when she wept after a lesson, the court was told.

In September 2008, a Hong Kong primary school teacher was jailed for six years and eight months for having sex with a 10-year-old female pupil in his class.
