Former Oldham teacher had sex with schoolgirl in car parks and lay-bys across Greater Manchester

A former Oldham teacher drove a schoolgirl to car parks and lay-bys across Greater Manchester to have sex.

Darren Fisher, 40, sent the girl emails and text messages which became sexually inappropriate. He then took her to locations across Greater Manchester where they would have sex in his car.

Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court was told the activity continued for about a year.

Fisher, of Woodlands Grove, Halifax, was jailed for five years after he pleaded guilty to six counts of sexual activity with a child and six counts of engaging in sexual activity with a person under the age of 18 whilst in a position of trust.

He was arrested in November 2016 after concerns were raised to police about his behaviour and he admitted to officers he knew the girl was underage when he began having sex with her.
