A teacher who French kissed a pupil avoided an immediate jail term today.

Keith Ogunsola, 44, from Surrey, grabbed the 14-year-old in his office and put his tongue in her mouth.

He denied, but was convicted of, sexual assault.

Judge Martyn Zeidman QC, sentencing Ogunsola at Snaresbrook Crown Court, east London, said guidelines suggested a community sentence would be appropriate for the offence but the breach of trust had increased its seriousness.

He sentenced Ogunsola to 12 weeks imprisonment but suspended the sentence for 12 months.
