A former PE teacher's been jailed for 5 years after indecently assaulting pupils at two Norfolk high schools.
Suffolk Teacher To Appeal Conviction
A Suffolk high school PE teacher is appealing his conviction for sexually assaulting teenage girls.
Stephen Benson, 50, from Copdock, was convicted of nine rape charges and eight indecent assaults and two counts of sexual activity with a child at Ipswich Crown Court last week.
In his defence he claimed he had sexual relationships with only two of the girls but said they were consensual.
Now Benson has formally lodged an appeal against his conviction with Ipswich Crown Court and the case will be forwarded to the Royal Courts of Justice.
Stephen Benson's legal team have so far not released his exact objection to his conviction.
It's happened just days after a 16 year old boy was also stabbed in the town.
Five people have been arrested in connection with a stabbing in Ipswich over the weekend.
The family of an 83 year old man murdered in East Harling, have thanked Norfolk Police.
