Jury will resume next week

7:21 pm on 19 September 2014

Jurors in the case of an Auckland teacher accused of inappropriately touching his students in class will resume considering their verdicts on Monday morning.

The teacher, aged in his 60s, denied 23 charges of doing an indecent act on girls under the age of 12 over a two-year period.

Suppression orders prevent Radio New Zealand from naming the man or the school to protect the identity of the victims.

The jury began deliberating late on Thursday afternoon .
