Cooma teacher pleads guilty to sexually assaulting a student

ln court justice

A former teacher at a Cooma high school has pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Back in 2005, it's alleged the teacher and his student - who was between the ages of 10 and 14 - struck up a relationship and had sex at his home.

The girl told other students of their encounters, and one of her concerned friends relayed the story to her mother.

Police were notified of the assaults that same year but no charges were laid until 2010.

The case resumes in Queanbeyan district court later this month.
