Teacher convicted of rape


An Island maths teacher has been convicted of rape and 10 counts of indecent assault.

A short time ago at Douglas Courthouse, a jury of seven returned guilty verdicts in the case of 58 year-old Davoud Taghinejad.

The offences were committed on five teenage girls between 2011 and 2013.

Deemster Alastair Montgomerie has remanded Taghinejad in custody.

He’s due to be sentenced next Tuesday (February 4) at 2.15pm.
