Officials condemn teacher for molesting youngster

Date Posted: 2005-10-06

A school teacher is in jail charged with immoral conduct with a minor, and board of education officials are saying they can never forgive him.

The Naha City teacher was arrested after being discovered sexually involved with a 14-year-old girl. The affair began through a cellphone dating site, then moved on to email conversation.

Knowing he was dealing with a minor under 18, the Nishihara man said he still asked in an email to meet her, and she responded “yes we can.” He took the girl to an Okinawa City hotel, where officials say he engaged in immoral things. The girl reportedly was paid Y10,000 for her services.

Education officials say the teacher’s contract ended last week, saying “he was a teacher, but what did he do? A child’s human rights have been destroyed.” A Board of Education member says “we’re doing our best to prevent scandals,” noting that immoral conduct by teachers has been increasing.

The teacher is now in an Urasoe City jail.
