A  COURT  in Malaga  City has sentenced  a school student to  six months in prison after finding her guilty of assaulting  one of her teachers in Mijas.
Malaga  City’s Second  Criminal Court heard  the student had tried  to avoid taking an English exam at a Mijas school last  February.
The  defendant  had protested  to her teacher  before then arguing  and making inappropriate comments towards her.
Prosecutors  said the defendant then assaulted her.
Emergency  services personnel  had to be called in  to treat the teacher’s  injuries, the court heard.  The teacher brought the case  to court with the help of the  Workers’ Commission (CCOO) union, of  which she is a member.
Felix Martin,  secretary general of the union’s teaching  division, said he was satisfied with the sentence  and encouraged teachers who had suffered from similar  attacks to come forward.
