Pedophile Teacher – Repeat Sex Offender

A CONVICTED paedophile, who received an 18-month suspended sentence in December 2006 for sexually molesting boys while he was a teacher at a primary school in George, has been arrested again.

He was arrested last weekend after another young victim claimed he had been molested.

The man appeared in the George Magistrate‘s Court yesterday for a bail application .

“His arrest came after another alleged under-aged victim came forward and claimed he was molested between December 2008 and May this year,” Southern Cape police spokesman Captain Malcolm Pojie said.

The middle-aged man, who cannot be named as he has not yet pleaded, was remanded until Monday while police investigate two other possible suspects in the case.

In December 2006, the man was charged in the Thembalethu Magistrate‘s Court for sexually interfering with three 12-year-old boys while coaching sports at the George primary school.

The man, described in a psychologist‘s report to the court as a paedophile, was given an 18-month suspended sentence and five years‘ correctional service.

Sources said the latest alleged victim was a friend of the accused‘s son.

Pojie said it was possible bail would be withheld if it was found that the man had contravened the restrictions imposed on him in terms of his 2006 sentence.

The mother of the alleged victim said yesterday she was “very angry” about the alleged molestation and was “extremely worried” about her son, who had become withdrawn and anti-social.

“25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years”
