In the UK, a maths teacher, Anthony Dockerty, was jailed for 15 years for sexual attacks on two young girls. Using his position as a teacher, he even groomed one of his pupils on Facebook. The fact that he was a teacher helped him to target his victims for he believed he possessed an advantage over many people. The teacher was jailed at Hull Crown Court and showed no emotions while being led away from his relatives. The latter scoffed at him but he seemed to ignore it.
Dockerty sent nearly 150 messages of sexual and inappropriate nature to one of his pupils. Saying she looked "gorgeous", and that he wanted to "grab her and bite her neck", the teacher warned a pupil to delete all his messages immediately after receiving them. It is obvious that Dockerty did not want anyone to discover the messages of such nature sent to his pupil.
The teenager had "pashes" to the teacher and she would often miss classes to meet Dockerty alone. Once she asked him what was wrong for he seemed to be depressed and the teacher offered her to visit his Facebook page. Their relationship developed after. Eventually, the girl agreed to come to his house, and then took her upstairs where he began to kiss her and thenfolded .
The police was alerted by a woman who had access to his Facebook account and read the messages and custom papers of inappropriate nature. Dockerty is banned to work with children and have contact with young people, under sexual offences prevention order.
