Teen Who Laughed As He Sexually Assaulted Teacher Has Jail Term Slashed

Jail term reduced for youth who laughed as he assaulted teacher

A 15-year-old boy who 'laughed' as he carried out a serious sexual assault on a teacher has had his jail term cut.

The boy – who was 14 at the time of the attack – had admitted sexually assaulting the woman at a school in Wales and was given a four-year sentence.

Now, a judge at Mold Crown Court has reduced the term by 12 months.

The BBC reports that Mr Recorder Greg Bull QC had the case re-listed after reconsidering the sentence he had imposed.

The youth will remain on the sex offenders' register for life, and will spend three years in a youth detention centre.

His traumatised teacher is reported to be unable to return to the school.
