A married PE teacher who had a sexual relationship with a girl pupil after seducing her in one-to-one lessons was today jailed for ten months.
Marc Grim, 37, became 'infatuated' with the 16-year-old after teaching her basketball classes at school.
The father-of-two invited her mother to a meeting to discuss the girl's 'sporting ability' and suggested she would benefit from private tuition.
They soon began a sexual relationship and he regularly told her he 'loved' her in exchange for sex acts, Exeter Crown Court heard.
In his defense, their sexual relationship didn't include full-on intercourse. Great defense.
And had the sexes of the parties been reversed, it's easy to believe the punishment would not have been as much.
