A FORMER North Trafford College maths teacher has been found guilty of rape and 10 counts of indecent assault.

Davoud Taghinejad, 58, who committed the crimes at a school on the Isle of Man between 2011 and 2013, is being held in custody to await sentencing on Tuesday.

He taught at North Trafford College, now Trafford College’s Centre for Science & Technology at Talbot Road, for 10 years before moving to the Isle of Man in 2009.

The assaults involved five girls who were aged between 13 and 17 at the time.

A jury of seven delivered its verdict at Douglas Court House.

Deemster Alastair Montgomerie said Taghinejad was facing a ‘substantial’ prison sentence.
