Teacher jailed for student sex abuse

A 67-year-old Perth man has been jailed for almost five and a half years for sexually abusing three female students while he was a teacher in the 1980s.

Ian Stanley Brown was found guilty of 17 charges.

The girls were aged about ten and some of the abuse happened while he was in charge of school camps in regional Western Australia.

The District Court was told at one point the school principal was made aware there were problems with Brown, but he let him keep his job after he promised not to touch the students again.

Judge Phillip Eaton described the offences as a gross breach of trust.

One of his victims says she has suffered greatly as a result of the abuse.

“I’ve had an eating disorder, suicide attempts, numerous hospitalisations, it’s affected me and my family very very badly,” one person said.
