A teacher was found dead three days after being sentenced for quizzing school girls about their sex lives.

Kenneth Boal, 56, was found dead at a property in the Bonaly area of the Capital last Friday, three days after being sentenced for indecent remarks.

He had been found guilty in September and was placed on probation at Livingston Sheriff Court three days prior to his death.

Boal had resigned from his post teaching job after his conviction with a sheriff stating that he had taken ‘an unhealthy interest’ in two teenage girls.

He was ordered to carry out 220 hours of unpaid work and pay compensation of £1000 in respect of each victim.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Police were called to an address in Bonaly Wester in Edinburgh at around 11pm on Friday 15 September following the sudden death of a man in his 50s.

The death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”
