High school teacher who engaged in oral sex with student appeals jail sentence

An Adelaide high school teacher who engaged in oral sex with a female student has failed to have his conviction overturned.

Marco Chiro, 56, was sentenced to 10 years behind bars in July for sexually assaulting a young female student between 2008 and 2011.

Chiro appealed in the South Australian Court of Criminal Appeal today, arguing that the jury’s verdict was unreasonable and the jail term excessive, however was unsuccessful.
