Teacher behind bars after sex ‘mix up’

Six long years was the judge’s sentence for a teacher who staggered drunkenly into the wrong house and groped his neighbour instead of his wife.

PE teacher Richard Duffy, 32, was decidedly worse for wear when he stumbled through the unlocked door at 5am and made his way upstairs to the bedroom where the woman and her boyfriend were sleeping. After she started screaming, he bade a hasty retreat and fled the scene of the crime.

Duffy, of Colne, Lancs, pleaded guilty of sexual assault at Preston Crown Court, with the judge promptly throwing the book at him.

Detective Inspector Paul Rudd said: ‘This was a particularly nasty offence against a woman who felt she should have been safe in her own home.’
