    Teacher who French-kissed 14-year-old schoolgirl spared jail because of his heart condition

    A science master who French kissed a 14-year-old girl and asked pupils about their sex lives was spared jail because he has a heart condition.

    Keith Ogunsola, 44, grabbed the teenager in his office before kissing her as she tried to push him away.
    The married father also embarrassed girl pupils during a chemistry revision class by asking if they had performed sex acts on their boyfriends.

    Ogunsola had been warned last month that he faced an inevitable prison sentence.
    But Judge Martyn Zeidman, QC, suspended a 12-week jail term for 12 months after reading medical reports. The judge said: 'Certainly what you have done doesn't deserve a death sentence.
    'I'm just persuaded that it would be right in the circumstances of this case to suspend the sentence of imprisonment.
    'You will never again be employed as a school teacher. My primary concern is to protect members of the public and other potential pupils.'
    The judge praised the victim's courage, adding: 'I want to pay tribute to the girl who bravely made this complaint. She's a very impressive young lady.'

    Describing her ordeal in Ogunsola's office, the girl said: 'He put his arms around my waist and said, "Do you want a kiss?"
    'He pulled me close and then kissed me and put his tongue in my mouth.
    'I pushed him away. He pulled me really close. He was holding my wrists and he kissed me again.'
    She said she was 'shocked' by Ogunsola's advances and simply 'froze'. She said Ogunsola asked her: 'Aren't you supposed to be my Valentine?'
    The girl said she reminded Ogunsolahe was married with children. 'I said, "You have got a wife and kids and I have got a boyfriend". He said, "Dump your boyfriend".'
    The girl said Ogunsola had asked her about her love life, and added that other girls at the secondary school had described him as a 'pervert'.
    Jurors heard how Ogunsola asked other girl pupils of 14 and 15 whether they had performed sex acts on their boyfriends. He also warned the youngsters that boys were 'only after one thing'.
