Former teacher jailed after having sex with pupil

A former Oldham teacher has been jailed after having sex with a pupil.

Darren Fisher, 40, of Woodlands Grove, Halifax, was sentenced to five years in prison at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court yesterday, 7 September.

The court heard how the teacher - who worked at a school in Oldham at the time of the offences - would send a female pupil e-mails and text messages which became sexually inappropriate.

He would then take her in his car to locations across Greater Manchester, including car parks and lay-bys, where they would have sex.

The sexual activity continued for about a year before Fisher was arrested in November 2016 after concerns were raised to police about his behaviour.

When he was arrested he admitted to officers he knew the victim was underage when he began having sex with her.
