Teacher faces jail for Vic boy’s assault

The future is uncertain for a now unemployed teacher found guilty of indecently assaulting a 14-year-old former student in Melbourne more than 30 years ago.

Kathryn Joy Woods, now 59, is awaiting sentencing over a sex act with the boy, who she was babysitting, in the hallway of his Melbourne home in December 1984.

A jury found her guilty of one charge each of indecent assault and gross indecency with a child under 16 but cleared her of one charge of sexual penetration of a child aged 10 to 16, five charges of gross indecency and six of indecent assault.
