Ex-Teacher Convicted In Aylesbury For Sex Offences Banned

Aylesbury Crown Court

3:04pm 13th April 2016

A former teacher convicted of sex offences at Aylesbury Crown Court in 2013 has been banned from teaching.

Benjamin Hannen was a Science Technician in a school which cannot be identified for legal reasons from 2007 until he was suspended in 2012.

He resigned from the school in October 2013 and was convicted a few weeks later at Aylesbury Crown Court for sexual offences.

He was convicted of sexual activity with a female aged 13-17 and sentenced to a community order for 3 years, listed on the sex offenders register for 5 years and ordered to pay costs of £3,000.

He has now been banned from teaching after his case was reviewed by the Teacher Misconduct Panel, the report states.

Although Mr Hannen was not a teacher at the time of the offence, the panel still considers that a finding that this conviction is a relevant offence is necessary to reaffirm clear standards of conduct so as to maintain public confidence in the teaching profession.

They found that Mr Hannen has enaged fully and sincerely with his programme to control his behaviour since his conviction and that his risk of reoffended is low.

It continues:

The panel is of the view that prohibition is both proportionate and appropriate.

The panel has decided that the public interest considerations outweigh the interests of Mr Hannen.

In forming that opinion, the panel noted that Mr Hannen will remain on the Sex Offenders Register until 23 December 2018 and this is incompatible with being a practising teacher.

He has been prohibited from teaching at a school, sixth form college, youth accommodation or children's home indefinitely but can appeal the review in 2018.
