Primary school teacher jailed for ‘vile’ sexual abuse of vulnerable 13-year-old boy
A PRIMARY school teacher has been jailed for the “vile and depraved” sexual abuse of a vulnerable 13-year-old boy from the Bradford area.
Jonathan Dooling, 31, was imprisoned for three years and eight months for a string of “disgusting” offences that included having sex with his male partner for the child to watch on a webcam and telling him to expose his bottom and to urinate in front of him.
Dooling pleaded guilty at Bradford Crown Court to 13 offences involving the boy and one of voyeurism by secretly filming naked men in a gym changing rooms.
Judge Jonathan Rose said he was guilty of “the lowest form of disgusting behaviour.”
“A teacher should protect the welfare of those he comes into contact with, you just caused damage,” he told grey-haired Dooling, who wore a smart suit and tie for the sentencing hearing yesterday.
The judge said: “You were a primary school teacher at the time of these offences. The oldest child leaving your school was 11. This boy was 13. Barely two years older than the children you were teaching.
“This was an appalling catalogue of disgusting and vile behaviour towards, and involving, this child.”
Dooling admitted 13 offences against the boy:
Six charges of engaging in sexual activity with a child
Five counts of causing a child to engage in sexual activity
Two charges of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity
