Freed sex case teacher JB 'not fit to teach'
"JB was found unfit to teach by the General Teaching Council
A man who was cleared of rape and sexual assault charges after serving five years of a 12-year jail term has failed in a bid to return to teaching.
JB, 56, was convicted in 2005 of the alleged offences which were said to have dated back to the 1970s.
After a retrial in 2010, the jury found the charges relating to children aged seven, eight and 13, to be not proven.
The General Teaching Council refused his bid to rejoin the teaching register after finding him unfit to teach.
Mr B taught English and History at a Glasgow secondary school before his conviction in 2005.
His teacher registration lapsed after this and he had applied to have it renewed."
