(Scroll down for video) A teacher pleaded guilty to sexual assault after sniffing young students’ feet for his pleasure.
The primary school teacher of England, is facing jail after playing “sniff and tickle” games with the feet of his students as a punishment.
51-year-old Martyne Airey, told the children who misbehaved, to stay after class. He then ordered them to remove their shoes and socks, and sniffed their toes or tickled their soles.
His despicable act was uncovered one day, when several students, all male, were late for class. When questioned by another teacher, the boys explained that they had been with Airey, and told her about the “sniff and tickle” games.
The court heard that students have not reported any incidents of trauma, but thought Airey “was weird.”
Prosecutors said Airey of Blackburn, Lancashire, carried out the crimes for “sexual gratification.” He pleaded guilty to eight counts of sexual activity with a child under 13 at the Preston Crown Court, and will be sentenced next month.
