Teacher Admits Sex With Girl

A South Australian teacher today pleaded guilty to five counts of unlawful sexual intercourse by a schoolmaster and one count of indecent assault.
Kym William Slater, 34, entered his pleas in the South Australian District Court. He was released on continuing bail to reappear in court next month for submissions on his sentence.
The charges, laid under a section of the Criminal Law Consolidation Act that raises the legal age of consent from the standard 17 years to 18 years where the offender is the guardian or teacher of a person, carry a prison term of up to seven years.
Documents filed with the court show the offences took place at Berri and Glossop, in SA's Riverland, between January 2002 and October 2003.
Slater was a teacher at Glossop High School at the time of the offences.
The documents state he committed one act of gross indecency upon a girl at Glossop on New Year's Day, 2002.
He had sex three times with a student once at Glossop and twice at Berri, on Valentine's Day 2003 and also had sex twice with a student at Berri on October 1, 2003.
An Education Department spokeswoman said Slater, who was removed from the classroom and assigned an administrative post once the charges were laid, resigned last Friday.

Teacher's SMS Plea To Cover Sex Crimes

A former teacher who had sex with two students tried to defend his actions through text messages, documents tendered to the District Court show.
"It's not as bad as you think, it wasn't a dirty sordid affair...don't tell anyone, this will ruin my life," Kym William Slater pleaded in a SMS message to his 17-year-old victim, that was filed with the District Court Registry.

In another SMS, he begged his other victim to stay quiet, saying "you have no idea how it would affect me".
Yesterday the 34-year-old of Craigmore, pleaded guilty to one count of indecent assault and five counts of unlawful sexual intercourse by a schoolmaster.
He faces a seven-year jail term for the offence, under which the legal age of consent has been raised from 17 to 18.
Court documents show Slater taught physical education at a Riverland High School in 2002, where he met his victims, "(We) had a game of truth or dare...Slater would ask us a question about sex and we were supposed to give an answer," the second victim's statement claimed.
The first had said she and Slater "were sort of flirting", while the second said "it was getting too personnal."
Slater continued to contact the girls through text messages and, on Valentine's Day 2003, he indecently assaulted the first victim in his car.
"He never actually said to me 'don't tell anyone' but we did discuss that he could lose his job if anyone found out anything about us," her statement says.
They later had sex on a couch in his house- meanwhile, he discussed sex with the second victim over the Internet.
He bought the second victim $60 credit for her mobile phone and said she could "work it off".
"He didn't say what he meant, but I knew that he meant have sex with him," she said. Slater had sex with the second victim four times, once offering her cream for beard rash.
During a January 2004 conversation, the girls learned they had both been assaulted.
"I thought with me it might have been a mistake but to know he'd done it more than once, I couldn't believe it," the first victim's statement said.
Judge David Bright remanded Slater on continuing bail for sentencing submissions in five weeks.
Outside court, an Education Department Spokeswoman said Slater had resigned from teaching on Friday.
She said any moves to deregister him as a teacher would not be explored until after he had been sentenced.

Teacher Jailed For Sex With Students

A 35-year-old teacher convicted of having sex with two teenage students has been jailed for six years by a District Court judge in Adelaide.
Kym William Slater of Craigmore pleaded guilty to one count of indecent assault and five counts of unlawful sexual intercourse whilst a teacher at Glossop High School.
His two victims were girls aged 16 and 17.
Judge David Bright said Slater had an established career as a physical education teacher and was well regarded, but a marriage breakdown brought on depression and he allowed himself to do something he knew was wrong.
Judge Bright said the courts would not tolerate teachers abusing the trust placed in them.
He set a non-parole period of three-and-a-half years.
