A teacher who was caught pleasuring himself while sitting at the desk of his classroom, told a judge that it was a private area, according to court documents in New Zealand.
55-year-old Simon Toon taught students at the Auckland Grammar School, when a student looked through a window of the class and saw him pleasuring himself.
Toon was found guilty of committing an indecent act in a public place, and was sentenced to 80 hours of community service.
Toon admitted to looking at 27 adult websites on a school computer during a lunch break, but argued that it was not a public place.
However, the judge disagreed, saying that anyone could have entered the room. Toon was immediately suspended and he later resigned.
Toon was also accused of rape, but police did not file charges due to insufficient evidence.
