Man facing child sex charges has teaching bid rejected

A FORMER school teacher who is facing a host of child sex charges has had his bid to be reinstated as a teacher rejected until the charges have been dealt with.

A teacher has been charged with two counts of indecent treatment of a child under 12.

The Queensland College of Teachers subsequently suspended his teacher's registration on June 24 pending the outcome of the alleged offences.

The Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, at a hearing earlier this month, had to decided whether the continuation of the suspension was warranted.

Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal Senior Member Kerrie O'Callaghan ruled the suspension should stand until the alleged criminal matters are finalised.

"Directions were made inviting [the teacher] to file submissions as to why this is an exceptional case for ending the suspension of his teachers registration," she said.

"No submissions have been received.

"As such there is no evidence before the tribunal that this is an exceptional case for ending the suspension.

"I am not satisfied that it is an exceptional case in which the bests interests of children would not be harmed if the suspension were to be ended before the criminal charges had been finalised." - APN Newsdesk.
