A jury has found a former Shetland school teacher guilty of engaging in sexual activity with two pupils.
Kieran Malcolmson, 35, was found guilty of being in a position of trust as a schoolteacher and engaging in sexual activity other than sexual intercourse with or directed towards a pupil in 2009.
He was also convicted of engaging in sexual activity with or directed towards another pupil at a school in 2018.
The teacher, of Sandwick, is said to have kissed the girl, aged under 18, and to have “repeatedly asked her to come to a dark and secluded area”.
The case was heard in Aberdeen and Malcolmson will be sentenced in June.
A full report will appear in next week’s Shetland Times.
