A SECONDARY secondary school teacher had weekly sex with a student in a school darkroom, a Victorian court has been told.
Paul Anthony Segar, 50, of Mt Waverley, appeared in the County Court in Melbourne today charged with two counts of an indecent act with a child under the age of 16, four counts of sexual penetration with a child under 16 and four counts of sexual penetration with a child aged 16 to 17 whilst under his care and supervision.
The court was told the offences happened at a secondary school in Melbourne's eastern suburbs between 1992 and 1994 and began when the girl was 14.
Prosecutor Steve Dewberry told the court the victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was first approached by Mr Segar in February 1992 when she went to return a CD to another teacher.
Mr Segar took the victim into an office where he "ran his hands up and down her clothes for a couple of minutes", Mr Dewberry told the court.
Mr Dewberry said the victim told another teacher: "He tried to make a move on me."
On several occasions Mr Segar put his hand down the girl's pants in the school's darkroom.
"He asked her once a month or so if she would have sex with him," Mr Dewberry said.
The court was told Mr Segar had anal sex with the girl once a week during the school year in 1994.
The school principal and Education Department were notified in 1994 and a letter was sent to Mr Segar outlining the allegations.
The victim did not report the incidents to police until December 2004.
The trial continues.
