Pervert jailed for sexual offences and making indecent images

A former Spanish teacher and football coach from Scarborough has been jailed for sexual offences and making indecent images.

Martin Fisher, 63, who taught for two decades at Scarborough Sixth Form College, was sentenced at York Crown Court on 20 November 2017 to three years’ imprisonment after previously pleading guilty to three charges of indecent assault on a man over 16 between 1986 and 2001 and seven charges of making indecent images of children.

Fisher groomed his victims by inviting them to his home where he supplied them with alcohol, hosted parties, allowed them to use his car and showed them pornographic videos.

Some of the victims were invited to stay over where Fisher went on to sexually abuse them under the pretence of physiotherapy and massages.

Fisher was also issued with a ten-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order applied for by North Yorkshire Police and placed on the sex offenders register for life.
