Chiswick, London: A paedophile dance teacher who sexually abused several students and made child pornography has been jailed for 18 years.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, the 41-year-old accused was arrested in May 2015 after he pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of nine victims, including raping a child.
Identified as Grant Davies, the accused was a director at RG dance studio in west London's Chiswick.
During his trial at the Downing Centre District Court, prosecutors said that Davies had groomed most of his students at the dance school. He had also forced some girls to wear crop tops during dance sessions.
In their testimony, some of the victims told the court that their dance teacher forced them to wear such short clothes that barely covered their private parts. Some of the girl victims said that they were banned from wearing bras while the boys said that they were ordered to wear a g-string or no underwear at all.
Another girl said that Davies raped her every Thursday night when he drove her home from the dance classes.
He was also accused of forcing his victims to stay awake at night by sending them sexually charged messages.
The court also heard that Davies had forced a mother to send him naked photographs of her minor daughters.
Davies was sentenced to a maximum jail term of 24 years. However, he would currently be jailed for 18 years and will be eligible for a parole in 2034....
