Teacher ‘Raped 15-Year-Old Pupil After Reading Her Diary

Teacher 'raped 15-year-old pupil after reading her diary and finding out she had a crush on him'

ENGLAND – June 4,2013; A teacher allegedly raped a 15-year-old pupil he knew had a crush on him by reading her diary, a court heard yesterday.

Stephen Bowers, 35, started a sexual relationship with the girl, kissing her in the school store cupboard and later taking her virginity at his house, a court was told.

The illicit affair ended abruptly when he allegedly had sex with her against her will, again at his home. The girl claims Bowers forced himself upon her in his bedroom even though she told him she didn’t feel well.

She did not tell the police until eight years later, following a confession to a counsellor.

The sexual relationship began in 2004 when she was a year 9 pupil at the secondary school in West Yorkshire where Bowers taught English. He was popular and regarded as ‘cool’ – singing in a student band and taking pupils to concerts.

Bowers became aware of the girl’s feelings for him when she left her diary in class and he found it.

He went on to a website used by pupils and wrote a poem called ‘Star Girl’ in which he referred to the diary and admitted his feelings for her.

The girl replied by sending him an internet message. He later replied saying he loved her, she claimed.

The alleged store cupboard encounter came in April 2004 – ‘the first time we touched each other’, she said.

On another occasion he is said to have rescued her from town centre bullies and taken her to his parents’ empty house.

She said he took off her bra and they kissed passionately. Although they were disturbed by a relative of Bowers, the girl, who is now in her 20s, said the sex sessions continued at his home in Leeds.

‘I don’t particularly remember being pressured into it because I believed I was totally in love with this guy and he was amazing,’ she said. ‘He was an English teacher and he kind of had a way with words. To me we were in love and it was going to last forever.’ Describing their first time together, she said: ‘He had never had sex with a virgin before and he told me he was quite excited.

‘It was totally consensual at that point. Even though I knew it was wrong in the eyes of the law I thought the law was wrong.’

The alleged rape happened in autumn 2004 at Bowers’ house. She said they watched a film and ate a pizza before having consensual sex.

Later when Bowers wanted sex again she told him she wasn’t feeling well, she said.

The court heard that Bowers told her: ‘You really don’t want this do you?’

Adrian Strong, for the Crown, said of the rape allegation: ‘The prosecution say Stephen Bowers took advantage of that vulnerability and forced sex upon her.’

Bowers was arrested in March last year but did not comment in police interview.

Mr Strong said the defendant’s case was likely to be that there was no intimate contact with the girl, that he was aware of a crush on her part but nothing happened between them.

Bowers, of Ackworth, West Yorkshire, denies rape and three charges of sexual activity with a child.

The trial, at Leeds Crown Court, continues.
