Detective: 'Runcorn teacher abused his position'
THE DETECTIVE who investigated the case said Mason has ‘abused his role as teacher and mentor’.
Det Con Tim Murray said: “Mason used his position of trust to prey on vulnerable teenage girls.
“Each of the girls looked up to Mason and came to see him as a friend as well as a teacher and he manipulated those relationships in a bid to satisfy his own sexual desires.
“I would like to praise the courage of the victims for not only reporting Mason’s inappropriate behaviour, but also for supporting the prosecution.
“There can be little doubt that these incidents will have a lasting effect on the victims but we will continue to work with them to ensure they have all the support they need. I hope that the conclusion of this case will give them some closure.
“Cheshire Police takes any allegations of sexual offences extremely seriously and would encourage anyone who has been a victim of this type of crime to contact police.
“Specialist trained officers are available to provide support throughout the investigation.”
