A teacher who repeatedly had sex with his pupil and then got her mother pregnant may face punishment.
The 51-year-old teacher began his mother-daughter tryst with one of the 15-year-old schoolgirls at his Ehime prefecture middle school, in darkest Shikoku.
One night he reportedly picked up the pupil in his car near the school gates on the pretext of taking her home to discuss her academic worries together with her mother, but stopped on the way there in order to grope her, which soon developed into full-blown sex.
He then dropped her off and warned her to keep her mouth shut – although not, it seems, for long, as he called her out for two similar encounters in the months following.
However, he was apparently unable to satisfy his lusts with only his pupil, and soon arranged to meetings outside of school with her mother “in order to discuss her daughter’s progress.”
Naturally enough, these discussions took place at local hotels, and over their course he managed to get the girl’s mother pregnant. She was subsequently persuaded to have an abortion.
The schoolgirl was evidently none too happy either about having to put up with her teacher’s advances, or else having to share them with her own mother, and unwisely sought assistance from the school principal.
After hearing what had transpired, he made his errant subordinate retire “at his own request” and apologised to the pair, but insisted “it would be better not to involve the police” and tried to leave it at that.
However, the schoolgirl was not having any of it, and approached police herself. They began investigating possible charges of indecent assault against the girl’s teacher.
None of the reports are forthcoming about the actual level of consent involved in the teacher’s encounters with his nonetheless underage pupil, beyond calling it “indecent” (as opposed to “inappropriate” in the case of the mother) – although given that both mother and daughter clearly knew about each other’s dalliances, it is hard to imagine the mother being sympathetic to the teacher had he forced himself on her daughter.
When local media soon got wind of the scandal the school merely insisted they were looking out for her interests by sensibly sweeping the matter under the rug and pretending it never happened:
“We judged publicising the incident would have a negative effect on the pupil’s school life, so we refrained from making the incident public or referring the matter to police.”
The local school board went one step further in its disavowal and denied knowing anything at all:
“We are aware of a teacher retiring due to poor health, but we have no reports of anything else. We will be sure to confirm matters and take the proper measures.”
The school has announced it will offer a public explanation to parents later in the month, although no arrests or sackings have so far been announced – or seem likely.
Online, there is a certain amount of demand for a adaptation of some sort:
“This is more amazing than any soap opera!”
“Forget soaps, this is ero-manga territory!”
“This teacher was some kind of sex demon…”
“I’m sick of watching AVs like this. Can’t they think of anything new?”
“Even the school told them not to tell the cops – it’s all rotten to the core, isn’t it?”
“Out in the country teachers – and cops – are still considered beyond reproach. Nobody can disobey the will of the community. You think it’s a good place to raise your kids? It’s nothing but sex, and rape under the guise of senpai-kouhai relationships is common.”
“Must have been a fatherless family – else he would have gone nuts.”
“Imagine being the husband…”
“Aren’t our police wonderful? They recently arrested a 19-year-old boy for having a loving relationship with a 17-year-old girl, but they totally ignore power harassment sex between a 51-year-old and his 15-year-old student.”
“Did someone write up the plot of an eroge as an article by accident?”
“What’s all this stuff about retirement at his own request and him being ‘temporarily’ retired?”
“Hint: it’s all to do with pensions and years of continuous service [so he doesn't lose his pension].”
“What a union those teachers have.”
“Join the Japan Teachers’ Union and have sex with all the children you want!”
“You net rightists are total morons. If you’d bother to look online you’d see the JTU membership of teachers in Ehime prefecture is close to 0%!”
“All this whining about child pornography and they can’t even get these guys arrested. You’d think they’d consider prosecuting actual child rape the priority…”
“What does it take to get a civil servant arrested around here? If it were a commoner you can bet they’d be arrested on the spot.”
“The girl is a victim, so wouldn’t her mother be an assailant? She did nothing to stop matters, after all.”
“The girl was probably doing enjo kousai, which was spun into ‘indecent assault.’ But why aren’t the police arresting anyone?”
“MILF@40 & JC@15 – that teacher was a high level hentai!”
“It helps if you just think of teachers as habitual sex offenders.”
“I-I’m not jealous of this guy at all! Really!”
“He was truly a teacher of teachers.”
