Former Oratory teacher is jailed

A FORMER teacher at the Oratory School in Woodcote has been jailed for 13 years for carrying out a series of sex offences against pupils.

Jonathan O’Brien, 56, of Fairfield Road, Bosham, West Sussex, was sentenced for 15 counts of indecent assault at Chichester Crown Court on Tuesday.

Judge Richard Fraser said some of the victims were unable to hold back tears as they relived the abuse in court.

“It was abundantly clear from the understandably emotional evidence they gave during your trial that your actions have left a very dark shadow which each of them has had to find ways to deal with,” he told O’Brien.

The offences involved boys aged from 10 to 16 and took place during the Eighties.
