Rapist teacher to be sentenced

A teacher who raped and indecently assaulted teenage girls will be sentenced at Douglas courthouse this afternoon.

On Friday last week a jury found 58-year-old Davoud Taghinejad guilty of the offences.

They were committed against five girls aged 13 to 17, between 2011 and 2013.

Deemster Alastair Montgomerie last week told Taghinejad he could expect a 'substantial' prison sentence.
