Update: 12:45PM A SCHOOL teacher was sentenced to two years in jail for having sex with a student on an island school.

The High Court in Suva told the teacher that it did not matter if the girl made the advancements first.

Justice Paul Madigan said it was easy for a 15-year-old girl to develop a crush on a young teacher and go up to any level to ensure that she gets her object of desire.
