Saudi teacher jailed, to be lashed for molesting school boy

By Staff

A Saudi court sentenced a teacher to one month in prison and ordered him lashed 50 times after he was found guilty of molesting a teen school boy.

The court in the eastern Saudi town of Dammam also ordered a three-month cut from the teacher’s salary and told the school management to move him to an administrative job away from the students.

Sabq newspaper said the teacher was caught handing a note to the student telling him that he admired him and that he is willing to sacrifice himself for him.

“I can sacrifice myself for you honey,” the teacher said in his note, which also carried his telephone number.
