A school teacher in China has been handed the deaths sentence for sexually molesting his students.
Li Jishun, a school teacher from the Gansu Province, has been handed down a deaths sentence for sexually abusing his students.
A statement by the Supreme People’s Court has said Jishun had abused 26 girls while teaching at a school in the Gansu province.
His victims were aged between 4 and 11 when the crimes were committed between 2011 and 2012.
Li had raped 21 of his victims and sexually abused the other five in classrooms, dormitories, and the forest surrounding the village near Wushan town.
“The Supreme People’s Court thus believes that it was appropriate for Li Jishun to be executed,” the statement said, noting that the crimes were committed in the space of just one year.
